Can I visit my son/daughter living at true?
Of course! We love having our guests’ friends and family come to visit us. At the moment, though, due to Covid-19 legislation, there are local restrictions on visiting other households so please check with our management team to check what's possible.
I'm worried about my son or daughter living away from home?
We pride ourselves on providing a safe and supportive environment for your son or daughter, and our teams are trained in first aid and mental health awareness, and actively encourage healthy lifestyles through our calendar of social events and activities. If you ever have concern for your child, we are here to listen and provide help in any way we can.
How can I prepare my son/daughter for university?
Help your son/daughter pack for university with our easy packing checklist. This outlines all of the useful bits and bobs they will need to make their room feel like their home away from home. Rest assured that we provide complimentary contents insurance, find out more about what's covered.
We understand that your son/daughter may also feel nervous meeting new people, so we create a Facebook Group for each of our developments, so they can 'virtually' meet their new flatmates before arriving. We also provide regular events and updates on these groups throughout the academic year, helping to build the anticipation.
How can I get in touch if I'm concerned about my son or daughter?
We're always happy to pick up the phone and have a chat. If you have any concerns or questions about your son or daughter, you can always get in touch directly with the General Manager at their chosen accommodation – contact details can be provided by emailing us or calling on 0330 808 4416.
Will my son/daughter be safe at true?
All of our true student accommodations have CCTV and are only accessible with a secure fob, while each and every room has its own individual locking system. Our true team are also ready and prepared to support you 24-hours per day no matter how big or small the incident may be.
I'm worried about my son/daughters wellbeing
Mental health and wellbeing is so important to us. Whilst living with us, your son/daughter will be surrounded with amazing opportunities and experiences that boost their wellbeing, personal network and life-skills. And we hope to make them feel energised, connected and inspired.
We also work with Dr Dominique Thompson from Buzz Consulting, she’s an expert in student mental health and works with us to improve our student’s wellbeing. Whilst we cannot provide counselling for students, we can refer them to a specialist for further support.
Where can my son/daughter get additional bedding and kitchen items from?
Take the hassle out of buying and transporting your son/daughters bedding and kitchen items by preordering from our friends at UniKitOut. All you son/daughter needs to do is CLICK HERE, choose the items they want, select their residence, then confirm and pay for their goods. The pack will then be pre-delivered directly to your son/daughters residence so it is there ready and waiting for them when they arrive, leaving them to quickly settle into their new and exciting environment.
