Because the locations of summer-time research projects are uncertain, it is advisable to agree a 38-week licence, which is more straightforward to extend than it is to reduce a 50-week licence. However, applicants should discuss options.
Parking is not permitted if housing is on the main RHUL Campus, but is permitted in the Halls of Residence across the A30. Applicants should discuss options with Security in the Founders Building.
