What will happen if I am living in Halls and do not meet my programme progression requirements when retake/resit results are published?
If you are living in Halls operated by our partner UPP and you have to/decide to leave the University following the publication of results in October 2020, we will waive the usual 4 weeks’ cancellation charge. You must inform the University (see FAQ How should I let the University know what my decisions are?) and the Accommodation Office (see FAQ How do I cancel my accommodation contract?) of this decision by 30th October 2020.
Please note that you will still be charged for the period you were resident in Halls.

I’m going to leave the University, how long have I got to move out of hall?
From the date you are no longer a student of the University, you have 28 days to depart halls. You are liable for the cost of the accommodation until you depart halls.
What happens if my household are in isolation when I need to move out?
If you develop COVID-19 symptoms you must self-isolate for 10 days and get tested. If someone in your household develops symptoms or has a positive test result, everyone in your household must self-isolate for 14 days.
If at the end of your 28-day notice period to leave halls you or your household are self-isolating, your departure date will be delayed allowing the isolation period to end.
