Moving in to your accommodation

In 2019 Arrival weekend is on the Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September. When completing your accommodation induction you will book an arrival time on either of these dates. It is not possible to move into your accommodation before these dates.

Accommodation induction and booking your arrival time

To make your arrival easier we ask that you book a time slot with us for your arrival. This is so that we can manage the number of people who are arriving on campus throughout the day. You will choose an arrival time as part of the online accommodation induction.

You will receive an email to notify you when you can start the induction process on the Accommodation Hub.

Collecting your keys and checking in

You will need to come to the Holgate building on the main Lord Mayor's Walk campus when you arrive (unless you are living at The Brickworks) This is so that you can check in and collect your keys.

Please bring your arrival pass with you to check in. This pass in generated as part of the accommodation induction process.

The only parking available on our main campus is for Blue Badge holders. There is a public parking available across the road from the University at the Union Terrace car park.


Moving in to your accommodation

If you need any help moving in to your accommodation there will be staff and Welcome Helpers on campus throughout the day. Please feel free to approach these helpers if you need anything.

There is limited parking at most of our accommodation sites. We ask that you only park at the accommodation whilst unloading your vehicle. You will then need to move to a nearby car park. Details of nearby car parks can be found on the City of York Council website.

If you are moving in to University Managed Housing we will send you specific details of local parking restrictions as some areas have permit only parking.

Once you have moved in to your accommodation you might want to attend some of the events being put on by the Students' Union. You can find out more about these events on the Students' Union website.

Paying accommodation fees

As part of your accommodation induction, you will be required to set up your Direct Debit.

We recommend paying in 3 instalments, as this will coincide with you receiving your maintenance loan payments. You will be notified by email to your student YSJ account before each due date. We will automatically take the payment from your nominated bank account.

If you choose to pay in 3 instalments, the due dates for 2019/20 are:

1st Instalment

11 October 2019

2nd Instalment
