Moving Day Guidance

By sophiebk 08 Sep 2020

Move in is always a really exciting and busy time, and this year we will be taking more measures than ever to ensure all students and staff feel as comfortable and safe as possible. Please read the guidance below to prepare you for move in day.

Move In Slot

You will book an Arrival Slot and due to COVID 19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines it is crucial you only arrive within this time slot. If you're running late please call your hall reception, contact details here. Do not arrive if it is not your Arrival Slot as you will have a long wait. Once you have arrived there is not a limit on how long you have to move in, however we would encourage all students to be mindful of freeing up space for others to move in / get into car parking spaces etc in a safe manner.

Parking

We ask that students collect their keys from their Hall Reception before they begin unloading their belongings. In your online induction you will be told exactly where to head to collect your keys. Once you have your keys there will be staff and temporary signage to tell you where to park.

Collecting your keys

Please be aware, if you arrive outside of your pre-booked arrival slot, you will experience a long wait to check in.

To ensure Social Distancing when moving in you will only be permitted to bring two additional people with you to help with the move. Any guests will be asked to wait outside reception while you collect your keys. Hall Receptions will have perspex screens in place and hand sanitiser available, we also ask that face coverings are worn indoors. 

Upon arrival you will need to show your ID and contract agreement to reception in order to receive your key.

Unloading your belongings

We will have trolleys available to help you move your things into your room. Student helpers will be on hand to ensure trolleys are wiped down once returned to ensure they are clean. Once you're finished unloading please return the trolley to where you collected it from.
