Coronavirus Update - Accommodation

Given the exceptional circumstances of the last few days, the University has decided to offer students who wish to break or end their lease for University owned student accommodation the opportunity to terminate their lease with 28 days’ notice. This applies to students who have already left or who intend to leave. The University is introducing this measure as part of the support we are offering to help our students through this challenging period.

The window in which to notify the University that you would like to break your lease in student accommodation is from 24 March until 27 March 2020 at 12 noon. Your notice period will start on the day we receive your email requesting release from the lease. Requests beyond this window will not be considered.

Students will not be charged after their lease has ended.

If you wish to hand in your notice, please do so by email to the relevant address below including your name, address and matriculation number in addition to your intended departure date which must be by Friday 27 March 2020 at 12 noon.

Students who have already handed in their keys will be assumed to have given notice of termination of their lease on Tuesday 24 March 2020. If you have departed without returning your keys, let us know using the relevant email address.

If you are leaving, you must take all your personal belongings and rubbish with you. There are bins and recycle points in our bin stores where you can dispose of unwanted items. However if you are planning on getting rid of your bedding, pillows and duvets, please leave these in your room and let us know.

If you have already left accommodation but still have belongings in your room, you must let us know.

For those students who will be remaining in our accommodation the residences will remain open with restricted access and some may be moved apartments which better supports social distancing or self-isolation, if required.
