The charges for transferring a tenancy are:
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.
Essex International College/South Essex College students cannot transfer with University of Essex students, however, they are able to transfer with other Essex International College/South Essex College students and should contact their respective support office.
Our terms and conditions give details of the terms of your tenancy agreement. By accepting a room when it is offered you are accepting these terms and conditions and you will be entering into a legally binding contract.
