Arrival Process (January 2021)
We look foward to welcoming you at King's Residences in January. Once you have completed your mandatory Online Health & Safety Induction, you will be able to book an arrival slot.
If you are an EU/EEA or Swiss national there are some things you should do to protect your status to continue to study with us in the UK. In order to secure your right to live and study in the UK, you will need to make sure you have moved in to your residence by 31 December 2020.
Once we have received this information from you, we will communicate with you accordingly.
What to expect?
What to bring
We advise that you bring in your bed linen and other bedding essentials. Please note that bed sizes differ for each accommodation site so be sure to check your residence for specifics. You can pre-order your bedding through our partner StudentEssentials.co. Likewise, you will need to bring in your toiletries, laundry detergent and iron. We also advise that you bring your cooking utensils.
What Not To Bring
Leave at home anything involving a naked flame, such as candles, hookah pipes, incense burners, fairy lights and barbecues. We also advise that you do not bring any large items of furniture into the residences, and this includes wardrobes, and chest of drawers.
Unless you’re a disabled user, please don’t bring a car, moped, motorbike, quad bike, articulated lorry or any other motor vehicle. There are much better ways to get to and from the university.
You're welcome to bring small electrical appliances that are in good working order. If you're bringing them from outside the UK, that means fitting your plugs with three-pin adaptors that comply with the British electrical system (230V, 50Hz) and British Standard BS 1363. Extension leads are OK, as long as they're not overloaded, but block plug adaptors are not permitted.
Laptops, printers and small electrical appliances such as speakers, small lamps and alarm radios are all welcome, as long as they’re fitted with plugs or adaptors that are compatible with the UK electrical system. Microwaves are standard in all kitchens – please don’t bring your own – but we don't supply kettles or toasters.
You also won’t need to bring any e-cigarette chargers, electric heaters or air conditioners because we don’t allow them.
