Student Storage in Leeds

Here at SPACE & time Mobile-Self-Storage we are proud to offer to students studying at the City of London University revolutionary services for packing and storing their belongings. Whether moving away or just for the holidays we provide smart and convenient packaging and storing solutions.

To help you move in, we created a list of tips as well as a list of accommodation options for City London Students.

When it is finally time to move in, make sure you remember the following.

  1. Ensure timely arrival

It is important to arrive to your hall of residence on the agreed date. If you arrive in London early you will not be permitted to move into your room before the date of the contract. In this case you would need to arrange for temporary private accommodation, which can be difficult to find and expensive.

Arriving late is also not advisable as you run the risk of losing your place. You need to advise the hall of residence of the delay in order to ensure the room is not offered to someone else. Also be aware that you are liable for the rent from the date in the contract and not the date of the actual arrival.

  1. Key collection

The keys for the rooms are usually available at the hall reception from 12.00 noon onwards. You need to report there and collect them.

  1. Accommodation necessities

You need to bring a lot of necessities for personal use which are not provided by the halls. These include bath towels, tea towels, cutlery, crockery, pans and kitchen utensils and bed linen. Having those delivered to you in a box (or two) by SPACE & time is always a convenience. We can also store everything during the holiday period or when you move elsewhere.
