Once your parent has helped you get everything into your room, we kindly ask that they leave the campus as quickly as they can to ensure we can keep our campus as Covid-secure as possible.

Please visit our coronavirus web pages for detailed information about how you can study, socialise and live together safely in the 2020/21 academic year. There's a specific section with guidance related being on campus, and specific sections for both applicants and current students

Move-in day

Unless you have told us you need to arrive early so that you can self-isolate on arrival in the UK, you can move in to your on-campus accommodation on:

  • Saturday 26th September 2020 between 8.00 am - 6.30 pm
  • Sunday 27th September between 8.00 am - 6.30 pm 

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 wobn'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.

Please collect your keys from the Chancellor’s Building (follow the signs as you come onto campus). 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. If you have unavoidable delays and arrive arrive after 6.30 p.m., please go the 24 Hour Security Reception in the Darwin Building.

Once you have your keys, you will be given a 30 minute 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 your parent has helped you get everything into your room, we kindly ask that they leave the campus as quickly as they can, to ensure we can keep our campus as Covid-secure as possible.

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 do contact a member of staff who will arrange to put things right as quickly as possible for you.

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.
