The UK Government has reviewed their travel advice. This means that we are now happy for you to collect your belongings. If you cannot collect your belongings yourself, you can nominate someone to pick them up on your behalf.
UK Government still advises to avoid public transport, when you plan your journey, please follow the safer travel guidence for passengers.
If you, or a member of your household, has COVID-19 symptoms, you should not travel.
Arranging your collection time slot
To help us ensure safe distancing in the hall, we ask you to arrange a collection slot. Slots are available until 29 May, Monday to Friday, between 9am to 4pm (BST). To arrange your slot:
- email your hall reception with at least two time slots that would suit you (Mondays to Fridays 9am to 4pm BST, until 29 May)
- be as flexible as you can, as we have minimum staffing in our halls
- you must give us at least two days of notice
Once we receive your email, we will respond by email to confirm the slot. We'll include information on any outstanding balance that might be on your account. Our email will also include the safety guidelines that you must follow when you visit the hall.
Nominating someone to collect your belongings on your behalf
If you cannot collect your belongings yourself, you can arrange for someone to do this on your behalf, for example a friend or a relative. Alternatively, you can arrange for a storage company to pack and place your belongings in temporary storage (you will have to do so at your own cost).
We need your written permission and the details of the person who is coming to collect on your behalf. To nominate someone, complete and include the following paragraph in your email to us when you request your collection slot:
- “I hereby give permission for <FULL NAME/NAME OF COMPANY> to enter my room and collect all of my belongings and understand that the university will not take responsibility for any loss/damage that may occur”.
If you cannot collect or arrange a collection by 29 May
If you cannot collect or arrange for your belongings to be collected or put in storage by 29 May, email your reception to explain your situation. The reception team will work out a solution with you. You must contact us though, because if we don’t hear from you, the standard accommodation charge will be re-applied from 29 May onwards.
