Windsor House

New room. New home.

New city to explore.

You’re right next to everything. Your university for lectures

and libraries. The city for shops and bars. And all your

fellow students. Where you live at university makes all

the difference. The perfect home is where you’ll achieve

academic success, form lifelong friendships – and bloom.

That’s where we come in.

We’re here when you want us and in the background when

you don’t. We’ll keep you up to date with all the latest

news, competitions and events on our Facebook, Twitter

and Instagram pages. It’s completely up to you how much

or how little you want to get involved.

MOVING IN

You’ll find your check in date on the front page of your

tenancy document. It’s under ‘start date’. You can arrive

on your check in date, or any day after that. Arriving on

the day? We’ll give you a time slot to help you avoid traffic.

Drivers: we recommend checking out the area beforehand

and making sure you know where to park. Coming in by

train or plane? Book your taxi in advance. Our staff will

be here to help you - giving you your keys, showing you

around, and telling you about your new home.


Your room is your space –

to relax, to unwind, to be

you. So hang up your jacket.

Choose a drawer for your

socks. Make it feel like home.

INTERNET

Your Wi-Fi is included in the rent. If you’re experiencing

problemsand

make sure you’re by your screen.

HEATING

There’s a radiator to keep you warm. If it stops doing that, let

the accommodation team know.

ENERGY

Lights off. Windows shut. Heating on low. Try to save energy

when you’re not in your room.

KITCHEN

Cook safe. No chip pans or deep fat fryers. And keep it clean.

If things get too messy, we’ll have to charge for a cleaner.

TV

There’s a TV in your room – but no licence. If you want one,

you’ll need to purchase one, either at tvlicensing.co.uk or

at the Post Office

stays over seven days.

accommodation team. Depending on availability,

you’ll just have to pay a £50 admin fee and sign some new

BIKES

Our bike sheds are on the ground floor. They’re secure and

lockable, but it’s your responsibility to ensure they are locked and

unfortunately, we can’t take any responsibility for any loss. Your

card for your room will give you access to the bike store.

DAMAGES

Even if it’s an accident, own up – otherwise, everyone gets charged.

See your tenancy agreement for a full list of charges.

Your safety and security

is our number one

priority. We’ve got it

covered – but you can

help us by following a

few safety tips.

FIRST AID

If you have an accident, please report it to your accommodation

team. There’s a first aid box in the office for minor accidents.

IN CASE OF FIRE

Your room is fitted with a smoke detector. So are kitchens and

corridors. Don’t tamper with them. When a fire alarm goes off,

never assume it’s just a drill. Make sure you know your nearest

exit, and know how to leave the building safely. Your designated

assembly point is

DOORS AND WINDOWS

We ask that you keep doors closed at all times and lock your door

and windows when you’re going out. Fire doors are there to protect

you and when closed they will stop the spread of fire, so please

don’t prop your door open. Windows will only tilt outwards and for

your own safety, should not be opened fully.

SAFE AND SOUND

If you’re worried about the safety of any of the equipment in your

room or the communal areas or you see any suspicious behaviour,

please inform your accommodation team.


If you’re not feeling

yourself, talk to someone.

Whoever you are.

Whatever it is. However,

you feel. We’re here.

FEELING ILL?

See the doctor. If you’ve registered with the City Surgery, you’ll

usually get a same day appointment. Call them on 02920 437 980

FEELING LOW?

Talk to Student Minds (studentminds.org uk). Or grab your

accommodation team, they’re here to support you.

PROBLEMS WITH A FLATMATE?

Noise. Mess. Antisocial behaviour. If it’s bothering you, speak to

your accommodation team.

SOMETHING WRONG?

HERE’S OUR COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE

In the first instance, please speak to your

accommodation team who will always try to resolve

your issue. If you feel the matter has not been

resolved to your satisfaction then please follow the

3-stage procedure as specified on the notice board

Moving Out

You’ll have to move out by end of your tenancy – you

can see when that is on your tenancy document. If you

want to move out earlier, you can arrange that with your

accommodation team. At the end of the academic year,

we’ll let you know when you’ll be expected to move out

and exactly what you’ll need to do. Before you go, your

accommodation team will make an appointment to

inspect your room – making sure it hasn’t been damaged

or dirtied.
