Accommodation - are you ready to move in?

We are looking forward to helping you move in and make Teesside University your new home.

Living in halls and managed housing is a great way to kick-start your social life and make new friends.

What to bring

To get your accommodation key when you arrive, you must give us a completed accommodation registration form.

You need to bring your own bedclothes, pillow, towels and any kitchen or cooking equipment you may require. Kitchens in halls are equipped with electric cookers, microwave and a fridge/freezer. Appliance instruction manuals are available in designated kitchen areas. Ironing boards are available in each kitchen and one vacuum cleaner is available for each floor. Students are responsible for room cleaning, including en-suite facilities, and the communal areas.

Cleaning materials and equipment, ironing boards and microwaves are not provided in managed houses.

Bedding packs and kitchen and starter packs can be purchased from the University's online shop. You must buy these items at least ten working days before you arrive.

Parking at halls

Car parking spaces are limited. Students living in University-managed residences will be allocated spaces by Campus Services at Parkside East. Registered disabled drivers may park closer to halls.

You must apply to Campus Services for a car parking pass after term starts in September.

Unloading your car

When you arrive at your accommodation you will be greeted by some of our student workers who will help you unload your car. You can park near your accommodation to drop off your belongings. Remember to keep laptops, other small electronic devices and important valuables separate and carry these with you to your room.

An accommodation warden will direct you to your room.

Before you set off

Check you have your accommodation registration form to collect your key. This is the bottom half of the covering note in the package sent to you after you returned your signed contract.

It is helpful to clearly identify your luggage to reduce the likelihood of your things being misplaced while you are moving in.

Key Collection

You can collect the key to your room from The Curve on Saturday 16 or Sunday 17 September between 10.00am and 6.00pm. If you are staying in Central Halls you need to collect your key from the Security Office in Central Halls. Just give your registration form to the caretaker.

If something goes wrong

If you are staying in one of the residences and you're delayed, you can collect your key from the Security Office in the Library which is staffed 24 hours a day. If you are staying in University managed housing and are not going to arrive before the accommodation office closes, you must telephone the accommodation team to advise us of your new arrival time, we will try to arrange for you to collect your keys from an alternative venue. You can contact us on 01642 342255.
