Student Roost, one of the UK's largest providers of purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA), has informed its students that it will be offering rent discounts of up to 6 weeks.

Those living away from their accommodation prior to 5 January and are unable to return will be able to apply for the discount.

The operator insists that all of its properties remain open and are Covid-safe.

A spokesperson for the company said: "As one of the biggest student accommodation companies in the UK, we've seen first-hand how difficult the last 12 months have been for our residents."

"We recognise that many of our residents are currently away from their university cities. They are following the advice from the four UK governments not to travel back to their university campuses yet, unless it's essential."

"To help them follow this important guidance, we're writing out to our residents to offer a discount of up to 6 weeks' worth of rent."

Student Roost added that many of its residents have opted to stay in their accommodation and have been able to continue their studies either online or in-person.

The move to offer rent discounts comes after Unite Students told its residents they could apply for a 50% discount on up to 4 weeks of rent.
