Moving into halls
Welcome to your new home!
Preparing to move into your new home is a great experience. On these pages we have put together everything you will need to prepare prior to your arrival and what to expect during your arrival.
For those of you arriving in January - you will receive more information about when you can arrive in Mid-November.
In order to protect one another, face coverings will be essential in all communal and public areas in halls of residence, including receptions, social spaces and shared bathrooms. You won’t be required to wear a face covering in your own private bedroom. You can find out more about where else a face covering is essential on the Keeping You Safe webpages.
Residents will also be assigned Household Zones to help manage any instances of COVID-19 within the halls. In halls, such as Woodward, Kemp Porter and Parsons House, your zone will be made up everyone living within your cluster flat. In our other halls, zones will be determined based on the kitchens or shared bathroom facilties you use. Find out more about household zones on our COVID halls procedures page.
Please be aware there may be times you are sharing your accommodation with people who are self-isolating, either as a precaution or because they have developed symptoms. As well as supporting all members of your household zones, you should always take precautions when using the shared facilities ensuring you clean touchpoints in those areas before and after use with the cleaning materials provided.
