Get help when you are locked out of guest accommodation
What to do if you can't get into your room or accommodation block, or you have lost your keys or access card.
Problems accessing your room
If you lose your key or access card, or there is a fault with your lock, do not force doors to get into buildings or rooms. You will be liable for any damage. There are University staff that can help you.
Contact your accommodation centre to get help.
- In the city, call the City Accommodation Centre at 01225 388518
- On campus, call the East Accommodation Centre at 01225 386622
City Accommodation Centre is staffed from 7am to 12am midnight every day. East Accommodation Centre is staffed from 7am to 4am every day.
Outside those opening hours, calls will be forwarded to Security.
The Security team could be dealing with an incident anywhere on University property, in the city or on campus, so you may experience a short wait for a member of the team to meet you.
