Lulworth Student Company is committed to dealing with any complaints received in a responsive and professional manner. Sometimes however things can go wrong. This could have many reasons maybe we haven't done something we should have or there are problems with the property, a person or people you live with or a third-party service. When things go wrong, we prefer to know about it so we can put things right. Please come and talk to us. Any person wishing to raise a complaint should follow the procedure below.

Stage 1:

Please speak to our reception staff. They will take details of your complaint and seek to find a resolution straight away. Sometimes this may be all it takes.

If you are dissatisfied with the response, you received you may then escalate your complaint to stage two.

Stage 2:

Your complaint must be in writing either by letter or email and directed to the Manager of the Lulworth accommodation. The Manager will investigate and respond to your complaint or will arrange for you to discuss the issue sit down with you and gather all the facts and try to find a resolution.
