Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a Standard and Deluxe room in Sandhills?

The difference is the bedroom floorspace, with Deluxe being slightly larger – we thought it is only fair it is reflected in price.

What size is the room shown on Building Tours?

The room shown on photos and virtual tour is a Standard Room at £149 pppw from a type 23 6-bedroom flat. As there are 23 types of flats - not all rooms are identical.

What if I change my mind?

If your room is allocated by Nottingham Trent University, then you should contact NTU and they will seek to provide a replacement. If a replacement is secured, the booking will be cancelled. If this is not possible, then the student will be referred to the providers (Unipol’s) policy.

For students who signed directly with Unipol and with a tenancy commencing 1st September 2020, follow the link for further information.

Is there an inventory for the flat?

To find out what is included in the flat, please see our what to bring to University guide

Is there parking?

As Sandhill is in a strictly city centre location, there is no parking – there is a tram stop next to NTU Newton Building (5’ walk away) which takes you to a Park & Ride facility at the outskirts of the city – there is a multi-storey car park nearby also.

Are all rooms painted orange?

With Sandhills, different floors will have different wayfinding colours – these are bedroom & kitchen accent finishes that help one find their way around the building.

Levels LG, G and 1 are orange - as on Sandhills Building Tour

Levels 2-3-4 would be “sand” and

Levels 5-6-7 similar to “turquoise mint”

Note that the mirror wall in the bedroom (opposite en-suite door) would be painted off-white, rather than the accent colour.

Who else is in my flat?

See you there!

Will Sandhills be ready on time as a result of COVID-19?

The situation at the minute is that the work force are still on site, however this has been reduced to enable them to comply with the Government Guidelines.  As it stands the builders have told us that Sandhills will be ready on time for occupation in September.
