Moving Out

When do I move out?

You do not need to move out and empty your room for the Christmas and Easter holidays. However, if you are going home for the holidays, it makes sense to take any valuables with you.

You will need to move out at the end of your halls of residence contract. In 2020, moving out day for most students who are leaving at the end of their 42-week contract will be 11 July. The moving out day for students at Flamsteed Court who are on a 44-week contract is 25 July.

Please vacate your room by 10am.

Stay over the summer

If you would like to stay in halls over the summer, you can stay at St Christopher's Court. We recommend you apply for summer stays as soon as possible. If you already live in halls and will be moving to St Christopher's Court for the summer, we recommend that you apply soon after Easter. Even if you only want to stay one day after your current contract finishes, you will still need to apply. You can do this by logging into your Student Living account or applying online.

Things to do when you leave halls

One of the most important things you can do when you leave halls is make sure everything is clean and tidy - that way you'll avoid unnecessary charges. Use this moving out checklist to make sure you've done everything you need to.

Avoid extra charges

Moving out day

Unless you've booked to stay on for the summer, you have to move out by 10am on the last day of your contract. If you want to stay beyond this date, even for one day, you will need to apply to live in halls for the summer.

Where to park when moving out

If someone with a car is coming to help you move out, please be aware there is limited parking at each hall.

And what about next year?

By now, you should have sorted out your accommodation for next year. If you're hoping to move into halls, you can apply online as long as you pay the £50 advanced booking payment. Apply online for halls
