Arriving at University Accommodation

Helpful tips for a stress-free arrival

  • Know where you are going? Maps for both on and off campus accommodation can be found here
  • Complete your online induction and arrivals (via the accommodation dashboard) - this will generate your arrivals paperwork which will show your arrival time adn key collection point.
  • We request that you unload your car as quickly as possible, and move it to one of the other car parks on the campus near the Cottrell building as there is only very limited parking around the residences. Members of staff will direct you to these other car parks.
  • We would ask you to note and adhere to the Universities Car Parking Regulations.
  • Please follow the directions given by all members of staff - moving students into the residences in a day may sound like a challenge, it's actually more like controlled chaos!
