Information for applicants due to move into university accommodation, plus guidance on the safety measures in place in our accommodation should the coronavirus risk level change in the future.
Yes, based on the current alert level in the UK, students are able to move into halls of residence and the shared flat will become your ‘household’. In line with Government advice, this will mean you can mix with the other students in your university halls of residence household, but when mixing with students from other flats, or students on your course, you will need to follow social distancing rules.
Tenancy agreements remain the same and are as published on our accommodation webpages.
We will be carrying out additional cleaning in high footfall communal areas such as lifts, and stairwells. Students should follow the current Government guidelines in place at any given time, with the students in your apartment acting as your household. We are currently working on plans to facilitate moving in days, so that social distancing can be maintained.
We have plans in place to provide the support students will need and should the alert level rise to 4 or 5 again, students who need to remain in their accommodation will be able to do so.
If you have booked Leeds Beckett accommodation, you can decide to cancel your accommodation up to the day before your tenancy starts and you will be refunded your deposit.
Yes, we will provide university accommodation for students coming from overseas who need to quarantine.
