There has never been a better time to book with urbanest

urbanest has always worked hard to provide a better London student living experience, and never more so than in today’s uncertain, fast-changing educational landscape. We have created a package of measures to bring confidence and reassurance to anyone coming to study in London. When you book your student accommodation with urbanest, you know that you can book with confidence.

Right now, it is better to book with urbanest because:

– We have a flexible Book with Confidence Guarantee

Our guarantee means that all requests for tenancy cancellations made after the 14 day cooling off period and prior to 6th August 2020 (1-week before UK A-level results) will be granted, and liability from future rent payments waived, on the following conditions.

The Customer can provide evidence that:

  • their university course will no longer be going ahead as a result of the University not being open due to the COVID-19 pandemic, or
  • they have not been granted a visa to study in the UK as a result of limitations in place in their country as a result of COVID-19, or
  • they are unwell as a result of COVID-19 and will not be able to attend university, or
  • UK Government incoming travel restrictions are in place, or their home country is not permitting travel to the UK, resulting in the student’s cancellation of their University place for the 2020-21 academic year

We have comprehensive COVID-19 processes in place in all buildings

In line with government guidance, we now have a series of social distancing measures in operation in all our properties. These include clear signposting in all communal areas to ensure all staff and residents are able to adhere to the 2m distancing advice.

We also have multiple hand sanitiser stations available in all communal areas plus face masks and disposable gloves are also available to all residents.

In addition to our standard cleaning procedures, we are undertaking deep cleaning in all communal areas twice daily.

– All of our properties are close to major London universities

Which gives you options as to how you can travel to university! If you don’t fancy jumping on the tube or on a bus then in many cases you can take a scenic walk, use of our fold up bicycles or, if you are a resident at urbanest Vauxhall, how about jumping on one of the regular river buses that can transport you into the centre of the city?

All of our properties are in Zone One

All urbanest properties have been built in London locations that have easy access to parks and green spaces – which is ideal for daily walks & exercise or for socially distant meet-ups with friends.

They are all less than a 5-minute walk to supermarkets and pharmacy’s, so essential items are always easy to access.

We provide super-fast broadband/WiFi in all properties

All of the rooms and communal areas at urbanest offer super-fast WiFi as part of your rent which allows you to keep in touch with friends and family via virtual platforms and will also enable you to keep on top of studies and assignment if any of your classes are being held virtually.

– An urbanest support team, on-site 24/7

All urbanest properties have an on-site building team as standard. This includes a 24/7 reception team who are on hand to monitor the entrance to the building and can help with any issues, no matter how small, at any time of day; and a maintenance team who are on hand to fix any issues you may have with your room or in any communal area.

You will always have someone from urbanest in the property at all times should you ever need to speak to someone about any issues you may be having.

We have a unique Wellness Programme in place

Resident welfare is one of our top priorities and in addition to the on-site teams, who organise lots of activities in the properties, we also have a programme of online activities that you can access at any time. From yoga sessions, to HIIT workouts to cooking recipes and mindfulness exercises. We even have recommendations for the best Netflix watches if you fancy a duvet day.

All of our properties offer free-to-use bicycles

We pride ourselves in our commitment to the environment and all urbanest properties have free-to-use fold up bicycles that are available for residents to use to be able to travel to university, to explore the city or simply to get out for some daily exercise.
