Contracts and Regulations

  • Your contract

    It is important that you read and understand the terms you are agreeing to before you accept your rental agreement. You will be entering into a legally binding contract for the period stated on your agreement and as advertised on the relevant hall webpage.

    All accommodation contracts for halls are made between the accommodation provider and the student occupier. While we understand that parents or other representatives of the student will be concerned for their wellbeing, dealings need to be primarily with the residents. Past experience strongly suggests this is the most efficient way of resolving any problems that may arise.

    University-owned or leased halls

    The halls owned or leased by Oxford Brookes University are:

    • Cheney Student Village
    • Clive Booth Student Village
    • Crescent Hall
    • Friar Court
    • Harcourt Hill Hall
    • Harcourt N Block
    • Lady Spencer Churchill Hall
    • Paul Kent Hall
    • Thames Street
    • Warneford Hall
    • Westminster Hall

    Only full-time students are eligible to live in these halls. If you are offered a place in one of our university-owned or leased halls then you will need to agree to the following when you accept your rental agreement:

    Residents are admitted to the hall and may continue to reside only if they give and abide by an undertaking not to keep a car in Oxford whilst resident in the hall.

    Cheney Student Village is jointly managed with UPP Ltd. If you are offered a place at Cheney Student Village you will need to agree to the above and, in addition, the specific terms and conditions for this hall.

    Third-party (partnership) halls

    We have a number of partnership halls which are owned or operated by a third party. Like our university-managed halls, only full-time students are eligible to live in these halls. Our third-party halls are:

    • Beech House, Unite Students
    • Dorset House, Unite Students
    • Parade Green, Unite Students
    • Canterbury House, A2Dominion
    • Sinnet Court, A2Dominion
    • Edna Rose and Champneys Court, A2Dominion
    • The Mews, Host Students

    If you are offered a place in one of our partnership halls then you will need to agree to the operator’s terms and conditions when you accept your licence to occupy, as detailed below. Students in our partnership halls will also need to abide by the University's Student Conduct Regulations.

    If a student in a partnership hall leaves the university they may still be financially liable for the costs associated with the tenancy.

    Privacy policy

    Oxford Brookes University and our third party residence providers, Unite Students Ltd, CRM Students Ltd, A2Dominion and Host, will process data in order to arrange accommodation contracts. The data controller is Oxford Brookes University. We hold nomination agreements with the third party providers so that students can be nominated to stay inside their student residences. We will pass on necessary information to these providers, as detailed in our Privacy Notice.

  • These three halls are operated by Unite Students. Tenancies for this accommodation are subject to their terms and conditions.

    There is no provision made for student parking at the Unite Student sites in Oxford with the exception of disabled spaces. As a result of this no motor bike or car belonging to a tenant at Beech House, Dorset House or Parade Green or their visitors is permitted on site nor should tenants bring any car to the city.

    You will need to pay an initial rent advance of £250 when you make your booking. Your first rent payment will be due in August. This will be for 10% of the total rent for the year. The £250 will be deducted from this payment.

    These halls are all operated by A2Dominion. Any tenancy for this accommodation is subject to their terms and conditions.

    There is a reservation fee of £250 which converts to a deposit at the start of your tenancy. You must pay a month’s rent before you move in and take out contents insurance with Endsleigh Insurance. This is a one-off cost of £5 and is payable to the A2Dominion Accommodation Office ahead of the start of your tenancy.
