Things to Remember:

  • You need to bring your own duvet, pillow, duvet cover, sheets, pillowcase, towels etc.
  • Bring your own kitchen items – crockery, utensils etc.
  • If you are already living on campus you may need to move quickly and at short notice due to business demands, staff availability etc. There is no need to worry if your moving date is after your current contract ends – you just need to stay in your current room until we ask you to move (you will automatically be charged for any additional nights). 
  • There will be lots of work going on around the campus during the summer – maintenance, refurbishment etc and choice of accommodation may be limited.
  • If you have an outstanding accommodation debt your booking will be refused.
  • If you are eligible to receive the en-suite, on-campus accommodation reimbursement, this only applies to your standard accommodation occupancy period for the academic year. If you wish to apply for vacation accommodation, outside of standard academic term time, the full accommodation fees will be charged.
  • You must vacate the accommodation by 10 am on the agreed date of departure and return the keys to the Key Return Drop Box, to avoid incurring further accommodation fees. The key drop box is located in the welcome area of the Barnes Y Building, on the wall to your right as you enter the building. Barnes Y main entrance is an area that can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days of the year.
