Student Accommodation | Moving In & Out | Cancellation | Hello Student

Moving in

You’ll find your check in date on the front page of your tenancy document. It’s under ‘start date’. You can arrive on your check in date, or any day after that.

Arriving on the day? We’ll give you a time slot to help you avoid traffic.

Drivers: we recommend checking out the area beforehand and making sure you know where to park. Coming in by train or plane? Book your taxi in advance if you can, or ask your accommodation manager to do it for you.

Our staff will be here to help you move – unloading stuff, giving you your keys, showing you around, and telling you about your new city.

What to bring

  • Your passport, passport-sized photos, ID and visa. You’ll need these to enrol with your university, join societies, and get a part-time job (if you want one).
  • Bedding – unless you’re lucky enough to live in one of our Conran Shop Executive Rooms.
  • Kitchen utensils.
  • Decorations and personal things that make your room feel like home.
  • Clothes of all types – from lounging around, to going to lectures, to nights out, to formal balls. Oh, and coat hangers.
  • If you’re bringing electrical items, bring extension leads, and a UK plug converter too.
  • Bike, helmet, bicycle repair kit. A bike’s a cheap, environmentally-friendly way to get around your new city. We have free bike storage at almost all our properties, too.
  • A first aid kit – plasters, sterile dressings, that kind of thing. Just in case.
  • Oh, and don’t forget your books and stationery!

Moving out

You’ll have to move out by end of your tenancy – you can see when that is on your tenancy document.

If you want to move out earlier, you can arrange that with your accommodation manager.

At the end of the academic year, we’ll let you know when you’ll be expected to move out and exactly what you’ll need to do.

Before you go, your accommodation manager will make an appointment to inspect your room – making sure it hasn’t been damaged or dirtied.
