Move-in day

We look forward to welcoming you on to campus soon!

Our main arrivals weekend is on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September 2021.

Most students will be asked to arrive on the above dates and you will book an arrival date and time as part of your accommodation induction.

If you are an international student coming from an Amber list Country, you will be encouraged to arrive on campus on ether Saturday 11 or Sunday 12 September 2021 to allow you to quarantine in your own room* before the commencement of any welcome activities.

If you have been invited to take part in any of our small-scale events which are taking place during week commencing 20 September, you may arrive earlier* and you will be advised about the date you can arrive by the event organiser. You will then need to book this arrival date as part of your accommodation induction.

*Where possible you will move into your permanent room, but there may be some rooms that are not available on the day you move in. If this applies to you, you will be temporarily placed in alternative accommodation on campus until your permanent room becomes available.

Please make sure you have completed your online accommodation induction before you arrive on campus. This is really important, as you will need to book your arrival slot as part of this.

At the end of the induction, you will be issued with your accommodation boarding pass - please print this and bring it with you. We won't be able to issue your keys to you without this. 

Please bring your printed copy of your accommodation boarding pass to collect your keys. You will receive an email from us which will tell you where to collect them from when you arrive.

As part of our Covid-secure measures, you can only bring one person to help you to move in. Please ask them to wait in the car whilst you collect the keys from us.

Please ensure you stick to your arrival time slot as best you can.

Once you have your keys, you will be given a one hour parking pass close to your halls of residence so that you can unload your belongings and move into your bedroom. After this time, you will need to move your vehicle to one of the main University car parks (not the halls of residence) to ensure students arriving after you can also unload their belongings easily.

Once you’re in your room on campus, it’s helpful if you can check it over. If there is any damage or something is broken or not clean, please log any concerns via the self-service desk. Please also see the below dropdown about completing your room inventory. 

Inside your room, you’ll find your copy of the Tenants’ Handbook. Keep this somewhere safe as it contains lots of information about the facilities in your hall, as well as explaining key regulations from your contract on what is expected from you as a tenant.

All rooms are fully furnished and a cleaning service is provided in all communal areas and bathrooms. Kitchen facilities are available in all residences. Please remember to bring the items listed in this packing checklist.

If you wish to pre-order a bedding pack and/or kitchen starter pack you can do this from Chaffinch Living and it will be delivered to your bedroom.

Shortly after you arrive, you will need to check your room inventory (items in your bedroom). It is very important that you do this or you may be charged for any missing or damaged items when you move out. You can do this via the accommodation portal, and we recommend you do this the day after you arrive.

You can find out more about Covid-secure accommodation measures here, and more general Covid-19 advice and guidance here.
