Cancellation Rights and Information

Once you have applied for your accommodation (via post, email or online) and your application has been approved, you enter into a licence agreement with the University. This means that a room has been reserved for you. 

The licence is now governed by the Consumer Regulations (June 2014), which states that the University accommodation contracts are not a contract to which the “cooling off” cancellation period applies.  Details of what this means to you, can be found with The Consumer Contracts Regulation link below:

Departure Information

Under 18s

If you are applying to live within University Accommodation and you will not be 18 when you arrive at Uni, there’s a couple of things you need to do to make sure you get a place in halls:

Firstly have a read through the Under 18's Policy (PDF) (PDF)

Then complete the Applying for halls under 18s guarantor form (PDF) (PDFbefore your accommodation can be secured.

The guarantor form covers the financial side of things and will need to be completed by a parent/guardian. 

The guarantor form/required documents will need to be returned to your Local Facilities Information Hub asap so we can process your application, get all the admin side sorted and you can get set for life at uni.

If you are under 18 you automatically get allocated en suite accommodation – you might see this as a super bonus! But if you would prefer standard to save some cash you can apply to move rooms once you’ve turned 18.

If you have any queries or questions please feel free to get in touch with the Senior Hub Manager at City Accommodation Hub or the Hub Manager at your local Facilities Information Hub.

Semester Only

You can still apply for accommodation with us even if you are studying at the University of Wolverhampton for only one semester.

Top Tips For When You Arrive

Keys

You can sign/collect your keys from 10am on your moving in date, this is when you will find out your room number. Your collection point will be on your arrival letter.

Wireless Surgeries

If you have any problems with your internet in halls, wireless surgeries are held on:-  City & Walsall Campus. Keep an eye out on WLVCampusLife for more details or contact Glide Help Desk on 03331230115 or emai: Studentsupport@Glide.co.uk.

Room Inventory Forms

When you first get to your flat you will be given an inventory form, this is where you inspect your new place and note down any issues e.g. bad condition, faults.

If you find any repairs or faults within your room you can log them using the HelpDesk Reporting System. Details of how to do this are also attached to the inventory form.
