Exciting times are ahead! It?s time to pack up and move into your new student accommodation and start the year at university. But moving in can be hectic; you just don?t know what you should and shouldn?t pack and so you end up packing everything.
While the fancy dress outfits and party games are important, there are some essential items and documents you must have with you when moving in. Keep reading to check you have everything you need and to ensure your move in day goes nice and smooth.
1. University identification/paperwork
Most accommodations require you to bring a copy of your university acceptance letter with you upon moving in. This is often required for proof of council tax exemption. If you don?t have this already, please request this from your university and ask them to confirm your acceptance in writing to you.
2. Valid ID (passport or driving licence)
You will not get anywhere without this! It?s important to make sure that you have this with you and you keep it in a safe place as you won?t be able to collect your keys at the accommodation without showing photo identification. And of course, you?ll need your ID for getting into clubs, pubs and bars for the fun activities that come after moving in.
3. Bedding and towels
To avoid spending extra money after arriving at your accommodation, it?s a good idea to take your bedding with you – including pillows, sheets, duvets and a bed cover. And don?t forget to pack some towels too! Some accommodations work in partnership with other companies who can supply bedding items for students. ?Here at Host Wembley we work alongside UniKitOut to offer students bedding packs (as well as kitchen and bathroom packs), and they?ll deliver your items directly to Host Wembley so you don?t have to worry about packing them. They?ll be here waiting for you upon arrival.
4. Outstanding payments and paperwork
It?s important that any required pre-arrival information and documents have been given to your accommodation before you move in. If the accommodation staff have received everything they need before your arrival, it will save you time and prevent any delays in checking you in. Waiting around is the last thing you?ll want to do, especially if you?ve travelled a long distance to get to your accommodation.
5. After you have collected your keys?
Check out your new room ? the place you?ll call home for the next year, and enjoy your first day at the accommodation. Say hello and meet our friendly team, they?ll be the ones to go to if you have any problems or questions, or simply fancy a chat throughout the year. And most importantly, meet your fellow residents. Knock on your neighbour?s door or pop down to the social spaces and introduce yourself. These people may not end up being your best friends but it?s nice to know there are people around you can talk to and enjoy student life with.
This is the new chapter of your lives, and we cannot wait to meet all of our residents on the check in day next week. We have been working hard to get things ready and are tired, but we are so excited at the same time!
Good luck everyone and our team at Host Wembley wishes you the best for your future.
