Moving in

You’ve accepted an offer to live in Halls of Residence at Royal Holloway. What happens next?

This year we will be operating an arrivals weekend over 2 days from Saturday 9 January to Sunday 10 January 2021. In order to maintain social distancing there will be a limited number of arrival slots available each day.

If you have accepted an offer of accommodation, we will send you an email at the beginning of December asking you to complete the Induction and Arrivals modules on the Online Accommodation System. When completing the modules, you will be able to view the arrivals availability and book your arrival slot.

Once you have completed these modules, you will be given a designated check in zone and when you arrive  on campus, you will be able to drive to this zone and check into your halls whilst remaining in your car. You will then be directed to your move in location where members of staff will be on hand to help you.

These are important online modules you'll need to complete before you move into halls. 

You will be sent an email in early December asking you to complete an induction module through the Online Accommodation System which covers information about living in halls and your commitments as a resident. Once you have completed the induction module you will be able to move onto the arrivals module and book your moving in slot.

Moving away from home for the first time and into Halls of Residence can mean lots of new purchases, including bedding, cutlery, crockery, laundry baskets, and all sorts of other things you might not think of.

That’s where Uni Kit Out comes in – as well as providing a handy checklist of everything you might need when moving into halls, you can order all your bedding, bathroom and kitchen equipment and accessories online, and have it delivered straight to your new hall of residence. You can order specific packs for bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen, and add extra items to your order to ensure you have everything you need. Securely packaged and safely delivered to your halls, you’ll be all set to jump right into university life!
