Documents to show

To get your room key, you will need to show a copy of your housing offer letter either by printing it out or by showing it on your phone.

If you’re arriving by car, before you arrive we ask you to download and print out a car window sheet to put on your dashboard. This helps us direct you around campus.

Download your car parking sheet as a PDF from your residence option below. Write your vehicle registration number, mobile phone number and key collection time on the print-out so we can contact you if necessary.
