This housing application is a contractual agreement with SGU for the KBTGSP and is subject to the University’s Housing Cancellation Policy. Since the housing is provided through Northumbria University, students will also have to sign a binding Tenancy Agreement with NU’s Accommodation Services for the length of the contract. Your housing application, fee assessment and payment will be processed through St. George’s University. Once we have processed your housing application, Northumbria University will provide you with your Tenancy agreement and room assignment. Please note that the University recommends taking out insurance to protect your belongings. Renters insurance is not covered in the cost of your housing fee.
