Driving home for Christmas…

This week we are providing you with information about moving out of your accommodaotion over the Christmas vacation and what you need to prepare:

Moving out of catered halls for the vacation
Students living within catered halls are required to vacate over the Christmas Vacation. Keys need to be returned to your residence reception on or before Saturday 16 December by 10:00am. You will be able to collect them again from Sunday 7 January from 9:00am. The last meal in catered halls will be breakfast served on Saturday 16 December between 8.00am-9:30am.

During this period you are not able to remain in your room, however, your belongings can stay. If you require self-catered accommodation during this period then the Accommodation Office have some residences (both on and off campus) available to rent for a minimum contract length of three weeks. In order to book one of these rooms, please contact us for further information.

For further information about moving out of catered halls, including how to leave your room and what happens to your post, please visit our website.

Moving out of self-catered
Students living in self-catered accommodation are not required to vacate their accommodation over the vacation period. If you are remaining in your accommodation over this periood then please let us know, so that we can plan for essential repair work and so that Estate Patrol know where you are in case of an emergency.
