University Of Bristol E-Induction
Once you’ve accepted your accommodation offer, naturally your thoughts will turn to moving into your new home and starting life at University. You should also look at your residence guide to find out all you need to know about life in our accommodation.
Shortly after you’ve accepted your accommodation offer you’ll receive an email with details of an online induction usually in late August or early September. It’s important for you to complete the induction before you arrive as it will enable you to live safely in your residence and help you to understand what to expect from your accommodation.
At the end of the induction you’ll be able to book your arrival slot. The arrival information will help make the move into your accommodation as smooth as possible.
Booking your arrival slot
You must book a time to arrive at your residence in advance – you can do this via the e-induction. You may face a long wait if you turn up at your residence without booking an arrival slot.
Our residences have different arrival days and times. Each residence has an official arrival day when welcome events (and catering in catered residences) begin. Arrival and contact information for your residence is available from your residence guide and to download in the dropdown below this one.
Your arrival date may be one or two days before your formal tenancy start date. In this case you won’t be charged any extra for your stay.
On the day that you move in, the latest you will be able to enter your residences is 23:00. If you will be arriving after this time please prebook a hotel. If you are unavoidably delayed and arrive after 11pm on Saturday 17th or Sunday 18th September please go direct to The Hawthorns where emergency accommodation will be provided.
You can arrive early if it is essential, however, we can only provide limited services. Your residence guide will tell you the earliest date you can arrive and the services on offer. Please read this information carefully so that you know how to make arrangements for an early arrival.
