Leaving halls for Christmas?

By UALHalls 02 Apr 2017

Happy Holidays!

If you’re leaving halls for the holidays please remember these following tips:

  • Clear out all perishable food before you go away. You don't want 2017 to start off with messy cupboards!
  • Turn off all lights, electronics and taps. You do not have to turn off your radiator, however, please turn it down to the lowest setting.  
  • Lock your bedroom door and close and lock all windows. Make sure all doors are closed.
  • Report any maintenance problems before you go away so they don’t get worse over the break.
  • Wash all your dishes before you go and make sure your kitchen is clean and tidy.
  • Empty your bedroom and kitchen bins before you leave. 
  • Finally, don't forget to remember to bring your key/fob back when you return next year! 

Are you staying in halls over the break? 

The Social Programme are hosting an array of events over the festive period including a 'Winter Wonderland' Christmas Day dinner.

Don't forget if you're still in halls, your Student Welfare Mentor Team are here for you too:

If you’re staying in halls this Christmas and need someone to speak to, please get in touch with your Student Welfare Mentor team on their usual email address:here4u@arts.ac.uk (and reference your hall in the subject line). Some of the Mentors will be going home for Christmas, so you might not have a reply from your usual Mentor but please be reassured that everything will remain confidential.

Remember that your Residences Team is on call 24/7, all year round, including the Christmas period. Furthermore, all receptions will be covered but may offer Christmas opening hours.

If you have any queries, please have a chat with your team at reception and they will be happy to assist you.
