Arrival information for pre-sessional students
Where to go and what to do when you arrive at the University for your summer course.
When to arrive
(As we adapt our service in line with the latest government guidance on COVID-19, this information is subject to change).
Make sure to check if you need to quarantine before arriving and let us know, so we can support you.
If you are a pre-sessional C student you can move in to your accommodation from 3 July 2019.
If you are a pre-sessional D student you can move in to your accommodation from 5 August 2019.
If you plan to arrive before these dates, email The Student Living Team to see if you can move in early.
Where to go
For Pulteney Court or Thornbank Gardens:
When you arrive
Our accommodation team will be waiting to greet you between 9am and midnight.
They will give you your keys, temporary access card and welcome pack.
After you collect your library card from the library, you must return your temporary access card to the West Accommodation Centre.
Our staff will give directions to your accommodation and help you find it if needed.
After you move in
Once you have settled into your new accommodation, you need to attend your induction sessions.
This is a compulsory session held in the first few days after you arrive, part of your pre-sessional induction timetable.
Kitchen group talks
There are talks held in your kitchen from our accommodation team.
It’s important to attend these as they are specific to your accommodation. You’ll hear what do whilst living here and how to stay safe.
The times for your talk are advertised on your kitchen noticeboard.
If you want to swap bedrooms with another student, you must contact the Student Accommodation team who can tell you if this is possible. You must not swap rooms without telling us you are doing so.
One visitor can stay in your accommodation for a maximum of three nights. To arrange this, email firstname.lastname@example.org with name of your guest and the dates of their stay.
If you have more than one visitor or they would like to stay longer, they can book into our guest accommodation, available from June to September.
