Moving In

Everything you need to know about moving into your new home.

2023/24 arrivals 

Our goal is to make your transition into your new home as smooth and stress-free as possible. Our series of welcome booklets, specific to each residence, provide all of the key information you need to help you settle in, so make sure to give yours a read on or before your arrival. 

Moving-in day is always an exciting time and in September thousands of new students join us. To allow for a smooth and safe arrival, we will ask most students moving into University-owned accommodation to book an arrival slot. You will do this as part of your mandatory accommodation induction which becomes available 14 days before your contract start date. Slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis; so please keep an eye out for our email inviting you to complete your induction.


Your arrival

We've pulled together some important information for your arrival. Please make sure you:

Remember to bring your 'Key Collection Pass'. Once you completed your induction, you will get a 'Key Collection Pass'. Save this to your mobile device, or print a copy and bring it with you. You'll need this to collect your keys.

Check your vehicle. Newcastle has recently introduced a ‘Clean Air Zone' meaning certain vehicles may be charged a daily fee to enter parts of the city, check if your car is affected.

Book your spot. If you're bringing a car or bike to university with you make sure you've booked a parking permit or bike storage in advance. You can do this via Parking and Bicycle Storage.


Where do I collect my keys?

Select your residence below to find out specific arrival information for your accommodation. Here you will find location information, reception opening times and what to do when you arrive. 


If you have any questions about your arrival, please contact your accommodation reception via telephone or email.

We look forward to welcoming you into accommodation at Newcastle University.
