Can I move in later than Sunday 13 September?

Yes – email as soon as you can, and we’ll arrange another move-in day for you.

How will ‘households’ work?

If you’re living on campus, you join a ‘household’ of 8 people or more. A household is a flat of 8 or more rooms that share a kitchen, bathroom and living space.

Can I mix with other households?

Yes, you’re allowed to mix with one other household at a time, in line with Government guidance. You’ll still need to follow social distancing, so please think carefully about how you can do this safely with the other household.

Can I move to a different household if I don’t like mine?

Yes, you can join another household if you feel it’s not working out at yours. Simply log an accommodation query in your MyHull portal and we’ll talk through the next steps.

In shared spaces at my accommodation block, do I have to wear a face covering?

Face coverings are required in all internal communal areas outside of your household, including building foyers, hallways and staircases. You can book shared spaces through the reception in your accommodation block.

Do you clean the accommodation every day?

Yes, we have cleaners who come every day. They’ll clean all the public areas and high contact surfaces of our accommodation, including corridors, lifts, kitchens, handrails and door handles.

I’m coming from a city that’s in full or partial lockdown. Do I need to self-isolate when I arrive?

Yes, and we can provide self-isolation facilities. Please inform us via your MyHull portal as soon as you can, and we’ll arrange this for when you arrive.

Our two-week-long WelcomeFest – hosted by Hull University Students’ Union (HUSU) – is packed full of amazing events and activities, taking place both in person and online.

At the heart of the action is our Main Arena, a temporary outdoor space just for you, with seating and even a huge outdoor cinema screen.

You are at the heart of everything we do at Hull. This year, our number one priority is to provide you with a safe and fun place to learn, meet new people and socialise.

We have introduced lots of measures to help you feel settled and confident when you start with us - you can find out more here.

As well as our COVID-19 measures, here are some extra ways to support your health and wellbeing as a Hull student.

  1. Make sure  your vaccinations are up to date
    Universities ask students to make sure they're vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) and meningitis Men ACWY (if you're aged 25 or under), so you should check this and sort it as soon as possible.
  2. Register with a GP
    If you're moving to Hull, it's best if you find a doctor's surgery near where you'll be living. You can find your nearest GP here
  3. ..and register for a dentist too!
    You can search for dentists that are near your accommodation here.
  4. Get your flu jab
    Students who have a serious long-term health condition are entitled to a free flu jab on the NHS. The flu vaccine is offered to those with on term conditions such as asthma, heart/kidney/liver diseases, diabetes, sickle cell and more. Catching flu on top of these conditions can be serious, so we'd encourage you to talk to your GP or local pharmacy about your options.
