Before you arrive

Moving into your new student accommodation is exciting but feeling slightly apprehensive about the move is completely understandable.

To help you prepare, we’ve put together some practical information about things to bring, and what to do when you first get here.

It’s not long until you move in and we are here to provide you with all the important things that you will need to complete before you move in.

1. Complete your induction

We take your health and safety very seriously. To ensure your personal safety and that of others, you are required to complete our online induction module. The induction provides you with important information which you will need to know before moving in to your residence as well as details about the support available to you as a resident in University of Lincoln managed accommodation.

2. Book your arrival slot / confirm your arrival date and time

Once you have completed your online induction, you will have the opportunity to book your arrival slot. These slots fill up fast so please ensure you do this as quickly as possible.

*The only residences which do not have bookable arrival time-slots are Lincoln Courts. Due to the size of the development, arrivals are allocated by the Court number, however your arrival time will be confirmed to you in the online process.

3. Read your insurance cover

You will be pleased to know that when you live in university managed accommodation, your residence fees include a basic contents insurance package. You may wish to extend your cover if you’re planning on bringing high value items. For our residents policy details please click here for more information

#TopTip – the basic contents insurance doesn’t include bicycles so if you’re bringing one with you then you will need to add this on as an extra!

4. Get connected!

All of our university managed residences have their own dedicated Facebook Pages. These pages are the only official groups and we only allow students in once they have completed their offers. It is a great way to meet your future flatmates and get to know each other!

If you are living off campus in a Third Party Providers Off Campus Hall of Residence then don’t worry, the developments often have their own Facebook pages / groups for you to join too. Contact your accommodation provider for more information.
