The DIGS team have been working continuously over the past few weeks to support our students, staff and suppliers but, as an independent company, we have had to make some very difficult decisions. We are a small company and pride ourselves on doing the right thing, but the kind of huge financial decisions we have faced affect so many people it has taken time to work out all the implications.

We are now offering a rent reduction to students from the 1st May 2020 until the end of the tenancy date. Please see ‘Do I need to pay by final rental installment' for more details. 

We have increased our cleaning levels across site in high footfall areas, however we would recommend that everyone continues to follow the advice from the NHS regarding personal hygiene. Please remember that a surface is only clean until someone touches it!  

Following advice from Public Health England we are practicing social distancing as much as possible, so our technicians and cleaners are only entering flats when absolutely necessary and messages regarding the avoidance of larger gatherings have been posted. 

We would encourage all to recognize the need to try to slow down any potential spread of the virus by following these measures. We all have a responsibility to change the way we act in this regard.
