Refer a friend and receive £200 cashback

This offer has now ended

Great news for current students who've signed up to stay with Optivo Students for 2020/21. You'll now be eligible to receive £200 cashback for every friend you successfully refer to stay with Optivo Students. You can refer an unlimited number of students to Goldsmiths House, Helen Graham House and Wood Green Hall - so the more friends you refer, the more money you make.

You can refer your friend to stay in the same building as you or to another eligible building. What's even better is that for signing up your friend will also receive cashback. Your friend doesn't have to live in the same building as you either, for example, you can stay at Goldsmiths House and you can refer your friend to stay at Wood Green Hall.

So if you have friends looking for accommodation refer them to us today and you'll both win. To ensure you're eligible for cashback, they'll need to use your account number from your booking in their application. Login to find out your account number.
