Just call at the Halls Office Reception Refectory Building during working hours and outside of hours call at CyberTub and staff will signpost you in the right direction.

  • What happens if I can't pay?

We’d rather you told us if you’re having financial difficulties. If you don’t pay your accommodation fees, you’re at risk of being evicted so keep those lines of communication open so we can help you, to avoid you getting into deeper financial trouble.

  • What do I do if I break or lose something?

Accidents happen so again, just talk to us and we’ll see what we can work out. If you lose your keys, let Halls Office Reception know and we’ll organise replacements.

There will be a £25 deduction from your deposit if you can’t return all your keys.

  • How do I get my deposit back?

You’ll be checked out of your room with a full inspection. Providing the room’s in the condition you found it, you’ll get your deposit back within 28 working days.
