Your handbook is full of essential information you will need to know when you move in with us. You will receive a hard copy on the day you move in, but feel free to take a look through the below to familiarise yourself with everything you need to know in advance.
Moor Lane Halls Residents' Guide
The Sample Tenancy Agreement gives you an idea of the terms and conditions of your contract with us.
You may want to bring a TV with you for your room and please feel free to do so, but please remember if you will be watching live TV or receive or record live TV programs, you will need a TV license. This applies to all other devices you may watch TV on too such as laptops and iPads. You won’t be covered on your parents’ license or our licenses as they over cover the TV’s we provide in common rooms and lounge areas.
You now also need a TV license to watch BBC iPlayer.
To find out more, look at payment plans or to buy your license, visit the TV Licensing website.
The authorities do recognise that most students do not need the final three months of a license as you leave our accommodation during the summer, so you may be able to receive a refund for this period if you don’t need it again before it expires.
Remember, if you do not have a TV license and you receive or record live TV, you could face prosecution from the TV Licensing Authority.
We know washing your clothes can be a boring chore, so we use Circuit Laundry Systems at Moor Lane Halls to make it as quick and easy as possible.
All you need to do is purchase a top-up card to pay for your washing and drying in advance either online or using one of the on-site machines. Or why not download the Circuit app, you can top your card up straight from your phone making it even quicker and easier. The laundry is open 24 hours a day.
Ask our team about getting a top-up card and there are plenty of Circuit’s ‘how to use’ videos for more information.
We want to ensure you are covered during your stay with us. That’s why we offer specialist insurance cover for all of our students through Cover4Students.com. All accommodation is covered under Basic Cover Insurance. Wondering what that means? Let us explain:
All your possessions, desktop and laptop equipment are insured for theft, fire, flood, burst pipes, storm, vandalism, explosion and lightning. Cover applies within your accommodation, in temporary residence and in transit at the beginning and end of each term.
This is just a summary and does not describe all the terms and conditions of the policy and does not form the contract between you and the insurance provider, so please take the time to read the policy wording thoroughly on the Cover4Students website to make sure you fully understand the cover provided.
