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.
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. When you arrive, you are allowed one person to help you carry all of your belongings into the building.
If you are coming from overseas, you can send your belongings to the University for collection when you arrive.
Planning your journey
Bath is a small and busy city with two universities. The roads around town and the campus will be busy over arrivals weekend, so allow time for delays. Contact the Student Living team if you're going to miss your scheduled arrival time.
If you're using sat nav, make sure you use the correct postcode so you are directed to the right entrance.

When to arrive
You will have an allotted date and time to arrive and a key collection point, depending on your accommodation building.
Parking on campus
Your email with your arrival date and time also tells you which parking permit to print.
Make sure your permit is displayed on your car's dashboard when you get to the campus entrance.
This will allow you to park your car for 30 minutes while you unpack your things close to your accommodation. After this time, please park in either the West car park or the East car park.
Collecting your keys and library card
Before you unpack your car, get your keys and library card from your designated collection point.
Ask a member of staff or one of our student ambassadors if you need help getting there.
Arriving out of hours
