Accommodation advice

If you wish to arrive earlier than the official move in date, please contact the residence to which you have been allocated to make enquiries; bookings will be subject to availability. If you intend to arrive after the official move-in date, please ensure you advise your residence of your intended arrival date in advance.

Please note that the second semester (Spring) is longer than the first semester (Autumn) because it is linked to the Examinations term. Students are expected to be in attendance for the whole period. This is particularly important to note in relation to accommodation contracts and fees.
