    This is not right place to ask this question. Ignore those judgement posts.

    Have a look of the terms of the contract, ask United Students ‘can I terminate the contract early’. 

    In April, a lot of students were offered early termination and particle refund. 

    Good luck. 
    Partial refund
    I'll look into it. Apologies but I don't have anywhere else to ask :/ I'm a bit stumped because I'm supporting myself throughout this student process. Everything is completely new to me, but I appreciate your straight answer. 
    I completely understand your feelings. I wish you can find a new job and get life back to track soon. 

    In June and July, some London students property landlord offered 20% - 30% discount to their existing tenants to renew the contract. But I personally think the rent will go back to pre-COVID level in September and October. 
    I'll see what they could perhaps offer too because like many companies I don't think they had clauses that would cover situations like these. It's a struggle for everyone right now so time will tell. Fingers crossed!

    IWelcome to MSE saffronmurray.
    I am moving this over to the student board. 
    I can't really offer any advice other than to hope it works out for you. Hopefully others with similar issues will see your thread and not rush in to deals.

  • Thanks silvercar: for anyone who has found this forum with similar problems, please contact Unite Student's customer service as they were happy to cancel my booking and re-book with the new rate over the phone. They mentioned their cancellation policy has had to be extended due to COVID-19. Just be mindful that their waiting times over the phone are a tad long... about 30 mins for me to speak to an advisor.
