Bookings - Torsion Students - Student Accommodation Coventry, Birmingham, Lincoln

Like what you see? It’s time to secure your room! Here’s all the information on how it works…

If you’re still waiting for your exam results and you’re not sure whether your place at university is confirmed, don’t worry, you can still apply.

If you are a prospective first-year student and your offer of a place at your preferred University or Higher Education Institute is withdrawn because you do not achieve the required entry grades, you will be eligible to be released from your agreement with proof of university status. This also applies if you accept an alternative offer at another University outside of your property region.

You must provide written evidence from the University/UCAS that you do not have a place within 5 days of your results being published (and no later than 1st September, whichever date is sooner) and we will release you from your contract without penalty and refund your deposit.
