If you have accepted your Licence Agreement online, paid your accommodation deposit and have a need to arrive earlier than your Licence Agreement start date you will be able to make a request to collect your keys and move in to your accommodation early, subject to room availability; payment will be required in advance to confirm your booking.
If you need to arrive before your contract start date please contact your Student Living Manager to check availability. Once the Student Living office has confirmed your arrival date to the Accommodation Centre you will be able to book and pay for your early arrival online via the Accommodation Centre Student Hub.
Requests cannot be submitted after Wednesday 8 September 2021 and you will be required to make your own arrangements for accommodation before your main contract starts.
Charges for this period will be at the relevant nightly rate for that academic year and these non-refundable charges are payable at the time of booking. Your booking will not be complete unless payment is made. Once the booking is complete you will be charged for those days whether you move in to your room or not as arrangements will have already been made for your room to be cleaned and made ready for your early arrival.
Please note: we are unable to guarantee that your term time room will be available for your early arrival. However you will be offered a temporary room and asked to move to your permanent location once your room is ready. Please ensure that you are available and ready to move to your permanent location. Your Residence Manager will be in contact with you to confirm that day you will be required to move. For housekeeping reasons you will be required to move out of your temporary room by 10am on the day requested.
Because you will be arriving to take up your campus accommodation before the actual contract start date please note that you may be the only occupant of the flat until your flatmates move in on arrival day when all students contracts begins. Also, please note that in order to facilitate your early arrival, your room will have been cleaned, but the communal areas of the flat (e.g. kitchen/bathrooms if it is a standard hall) may still require cleaning and therefore you may experience some inconvenience and disruption during this time. This is unavoidable due to maintenance being carried out in halls. During this week some of the rooms/flats will be used for viewings during the University open days - residents may experience some disturbance during this time.
Wired internet access may not be available during your early arrival booking period.
If you are a student ambassador/ contact / attending Orientation and need to arrive before your contract starts please read ‘I am a student ambassador / contact / attending Orientation. How do I book my early arrival?’.
If you need to arrive 2 weeks or more before your Licence start date then you must apply for summer accommodation with the Accommodation Centre; for more information please read.
