The charges for transferring a tenancy are:
- £20 contract preparation fee (non-refundable): to change your accommodation contract into the name of the new student. We are only able to take card payments for this transaction at the Information Desk in the Student Services Hub.
Transfers of a Southend 2 year contract may be considered up until 31 May in the first year of the 2 year deal. Due to the nature of accommodation allocations at Southend, the student taking over the contract must be of equal status as the student surrendering. This means if the outgoing student is, for example, a first year Nursing student (this year), the incoming must be the same; or if outgoing student, for example, is a second year EBS student (next year), then the incoming student must be the same.
Please note: due to the number of students arriving at the start of the academic year, transfer is not available until the third week of term. All students must have been living in their accommodation for at least three weeks from the date of allocation.
Please note this does not apply to previous twin room occupants.
