    That is the amount each student pays per year. The rent is split over several months. ( I think, but you'd best check, it's from October to April.)

    That's per student.

    The duration varies: but typically September to end May.

    Yes, the occupancy is usually September to the end of May but the payments are taken, certainly in our case, from October to April. It's worth checking because it does mean you're paying a bit more each month than you might expect - though, obviously, the total over the year is the same.

    Ah ok! I thought you were referring to the occupancy, not payment schedule
