Getting ready to come to University
Information on this page is subject to change so please ensure to check back regularly for the latest information for moving into your accommodation.
We look forward to welcoming you into your accommodation.
Your library card
Your library card is your official proof of ID on campus. You can use it to get into buildings and buy food and drink at the University.
Before you leave home, you need to register online and upload a photo of yourself for your library card. We will then be able to create your card so it's ready for you to use when you get here.
This is especially important if you are in accommodation with Eat and Drink credit. You will not be able to use your credit, or get your 10% discount at food outlets, until you have your library card.
What to bring, what not to bring
We recommend that you bring a minimal amount of belongings.
If you are coming from overseas, you can send your belongings to the University for collection when you arrive.
