You’ve accepted an offer to live in Halls of Residence at Royal Holloway. What happens next?

Induction and arrival modules, and your room number
These are important online modules you'll need to complete before you move into halls. We’ll email you a link in early September when the modules are available.
If you're moving in the weekend before the new academic year (Welcome Weekend), you’ll be able to book an arrival slot and receive a parking permit (if arriving by car), when completing the modules. You’ll also find out your room number at the same time.
What happens on move-in day?
Each Hall has a reception or designated check in area where you'll receive your room key. For some Halls, you'll be given a contactless key card as your room key. For other Halls, your College Card will be your room key and will be issued to you once you've completed enrolment. In the meantime, you'll be given a temporary key card at check in.
Where can I park?
When you've completed the induction and arrivals modules you will have your Arrival Pass (for check-in to your room), and Car Parking Pass (so you can park on site). Take a look at the parking map.
What if you don’t check in during Welcome Weekend?
It’s easy to check in after the Welcome Weekend. Just go to the reception desk for your hall.
Uni Kit Out
Moving away from home for the first time and into Halls of Residence can mean lots of new purchases, including bedding, cutlery, crockery, laundry baskets, and all sorts of other things you might not think of.
That’s where Uni Kit Out comes in – as well as providing a handy checklist of everything you might need when moving into halls, you can order all your bedding, bathroom and kitchen equipment and accessories online, and have it delivered straight to your new hall of residence. You can order specific packs for bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen, and add extra items to your order to ensure you have everything you need. Securely packaged and safely delivered to your halls, you’ll be all set to jump right into university life!
