When the accommodation portal reopens on 17th August at 12 noon, you will be able to select your contract start date. Your accommodation has been booked for you to arrive for your start of term on campus in September. We do however understand that some of you may not be able to join us at this time due to health reasons, travel restrictions or visa delays. For those affected by these reasons, you will have the opportunity to amend your contract start date when our portal reopens on 17th August at 12 noon to the following dates.
Your options are:
Keep your original start date of 19th September for those who wish to arrive earlier you will be able to select the Early Arrival Week (14th September – 19th September)
For those unable to arrive in September, you will be able to select the 31st October or 09th January 2021. Students wishing to arrive on those dates will be required to pay a 4-week pre-payment to secure their room.
What Happens next?
For those who request the flexible accommodation start date of 31st October 2020 or 9th January 2021, the 4 weeks pre-payment at your rental rate to secure your accommodation is required. Following receipt of payment, you will then be asked to complete the mandatory Health & Safety Induction and subsequently book your arrival slot.
All students must confirm their decision to us by 24th August 2020. In order to confirm your arrival period, please log-on to the accommodation portal from the 17th August 12pm using your personal credentials and select “Your Arrival”.
Once we have received this information from you, we will communicate with you accordingly.
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.
