That’s why we’re doing everything we can to offer students the support and stability that they need. It is more important than ever for students to find a home where they feel safe and can get the most out of university life. We’ve taken a number of steps to make sure that happens:
If you have a booking for 2020/21 and the current lockdown prevents you from being able to start your tenancy, please get in touch to see if we can help at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll continue to be flexible with our Covid booking pledge.
You’ll be covered if:
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
-A high temperature – this means that you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
-A new continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than a hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24hrs.
-A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus then you should:
-Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
-You and anyone you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
We ask all students to notify us if they are self isolating so that our teams are aware and can offer you the necessary support. Our team can support you with
-Getting food deliveries to your room
-Collection of parcels
-Bin refuse disposal – please double bag it.
If you are feeling anxious then please get in touch with us so that we can signpost you to the necessary support services.
If you cannot travel to the UK to start your tenancy due to Covid-19 related circumstances, please take a look at our Booking Pledge. If you think this might apply to you then please get in touch with a member of our team on 01484 270145 or at email@example.com
You will be in safe hands when you live with DIGS. We have introduced a number of measures throughout our accommodations to keep students and staff safe. These include sanitiser stations in high traffic areas, social distancing signage, and protective screens in key areas. All high traffic areas have also undergone Bio Fogging treatment which means that they remain sanitised before and after use for extended periods of time.
Students are also advised to wear face coverings when using public spaces.
All our services and facilities are open in-line with government guidance, but we will still make sure that you get the most out of student life. Regardless of the Tier that you are in, you will have access to a friendly on-site team, parcel service, laundrette, maintenance team, and experience (although this could be virtual).
There are times when the gyms and social spaces may need to close but this will always be communicated with students. At Storthes Hall Park you also have the advantage of woodland on your doorstep making it the perfect place to stay for long walks and escapes from the town centre.
You can book with confidence with our Covid Booking Pledge. You can be assured that you are protected if:
-Your university course is cancelled.
-Your university course is delayed.
-Travel restrictions prevent you from travelling to or within the UK.
