With many years (20 and counting!) in the student accommodation sector we know how stressful it can be if things go wrong when you’re living away from home whilst at university.  Having to work out what to do to fix a maintenance issue in your student property is stress you don’t need – your time is far better spent on focussing on your university life!

A major advantage of living in a Roseworth house or flat is that you can don’t need to worry about any maintenance issues and you can benefit from the fact that we have our very own in-house maintenance team who are fully dedicated to looking after any repair works or maintenance on all Roseworth student properties.  This means that you don’t need to have any worries over any maintenance work required – we’ll send the team round!

Our friendly maintenance team are dedicated to looking after any maintenance needs that you may have during the course of your tenancy.   The team are available 24/7 and no issue is too big or too small for them to solve – we like to refer to them as the A Team!

Here’s a quick introduction to the Roseworth Recue Team:
