Changes to our campus accommodation policy

Filed under: News — Laura Mathias @ 3.21 pm

Accommodation Essex have made changes to their rental policies in order to be as flexible as possible during the pandemic. 

We understand that a number of you are planning to study remotely at first and then arrive on one of our campuses later this term or in January.

So that we can be as flexible as possible, we have reviewed your accommodation contract.

This means:

  • If you are planning to join us this week on campus, your room and keys are ready for collection;
  • If you are planning to arrive on campus later this term, you will not be charged rent until you move in.
  • If you have accepted a room for October, but now intend to join us in January, we will hold your room for you and you will not be charged rent until January. Please keep an eye on your emails, as a member of the Accommodation Essex team will be contacting you in December to confirm your arrival plans.

Whenever you intend to arrive, please make sure you are familiar with where you need to collect your key by checking our arrival information for Colchester and Southend.

If you decide that you no longer want to have your campus accommodation, then please email accarriv@essex.ac.uk and we will cancel it.

Whether or not you will be joining us in person, good luck with the start of your journey at the University of Essex.
