    Living in university accommodation?

    Have your Arrivals Pass to hand for when you collect your key from your college reception. Your Pass shows your college and room, but if you need a reminder, you can always revisit your accommodation e-induction, pre-arrival email or ask staff.

    Arriving late? Don't worry!

    Just go to your college reception & call Campus Security on +44 (0)1227 823300 or use the call point located outside reception. Show a Security Officer your Arrivals Pass to get your keys. Go to your reception the next day to complete check-in.
