 Are Utilities Included in the Price?

All utilities are included in your rent. However, each student is given a weekly electricity allowance  per person. In our experience, this is generally more than enough to cover electricity consumption for a typical resident. We monitor the usage for the first month or so and we advise students if their usage is exceeding the allowance. This gives the student an opportunity to bring usage in line with the allowance. If the usage remains high and in excess of the weekly allowance, students will then be charged the difference.
