- What items does Dorset House provide?
Microwave, kettle, toaster, mop, bucket, hoover, iron, ironing board. We also have ¾ beds which require you to bring your own bedding and linen, the majority of current tenants use double bedding which works fine.
- Are bills included?
Yes utility bills are included but there is a fair usage policy. The annual internet fee of £160 needs to be paid in addition to your first payment before you move in. You are able to pay this via your personal CRM account, when you log onto your booking status there is an option where you are able to select to pay the internet fee.
- Do I need a UK based Guarantor?
If you are an Oxford Brookes Student, then you do not need a guarantor. However, if you are a student of any other college/university then you will need a UK based guarantor, unless you choose to pay all of your rent up front (in which case, you do not need a guarantor). If you do not need a guarantor, then when booking a room- in the ‘guarantor’ section please just put your next of kin details (emergency contact information), into this section.
- How long will it be to get my offer of accommodation after booking?
We always try to offer you as soon as possible after you have had your booking confirmed however sometimes this can take slightly longer to come back from Oxford Brookes, therefore we would hope for it to be completed within 14 days. Please be assured that once you have paid the booking fee the room is reserved for you.
- Can I choose where or who I live with?
There is a preference box on the booking form which allows you to state any preferences you might have, for example friends you want to live with, floor that you would ideally like to be on etc. We always do our very best to accommodate these preferences however we cannot guarantee it. We will of course notify you if they are not possible.
