How to support your children at University

If your son or daughter is moving into halls this September there is lots of guidance available in relation to coronavirus.

In addition here are a few tips to get them prepared for independent living (and to help you not worry too much).

Get them to brush up on basic life skills

Make sure they're ready to move in

Double-check they have the right cover for their gadgets

Hall fees include insurance cover for student belongings in their room but you may need to top this up to cover things outside their room. Find out more about the Endsleigh insurance cover we provide and how you can extend it if necessary.

Maintain a positive attitude

Have confidence in them but let them know it's perfectly normal to be a bit nervous.

Talk them through their finances

This will include how much they will get in loans, grants and bursaries, what you'll be providing (if any) and when their fees need to be paid.

Let us know about additional support

If your child requires additional support in halls, please make sure we are aware of this.
