Hi,

I'm sure I'm over thinking this but I am getting really confused about which day to actually move in! So as far as I can tell Freshers starts a week after arrivals day (19th) on the 27th Sept- which means there is a week of basically doing nothing (all my friends who are attending other uni's move in on the first day of freshers)

I rang up the residence office and they told me this is done to accommodate international students, so are most people requesting a late arrival and arriving closer to the start of freshers? If not what exactly do we do for a week? Thanks in advance.

Nearly all of the people I've spoken to on Facebook are arriving on the 19th. For that week we can basically get settled in, get to know our flatmates, register with the GP and so forth. It should be a pretty good week, and it means that the actual Freshers' week won't be as mad considering we'll have already been there for a week.

Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post but I would appreciate your input. So I logged into my student finance account and noticed that I am due my first payment on the 28th (9 days after I've moved into halls) The woman from Finance England who I spoke to over the phone told me that the money will only come in once the university has verified with them that I have taken up my place. This sounds nothing like the procedure my older siblings went through. Am I expected to have no money for an entire week? Thanks

I'm in the same situation and I don't think there's anything we can do. I'm going to use the overdraft on my student bank account for that week, maybe that's something you could do too?

It's because the UCL term start date is the 28th. You probably won't get the money on the 28th, I was a first year at UCL this academic year. I got my student loan 5 days after the day they said I would get it. You have to enrol at UCL first and they send the information to Student Finance. You'll likely need money for about 10 days to two weeks

if you're living in london and don't get the train elsewhere that often, i'd stick with the 18+ oyster card. I'm getting both for the fact of train journeys back home. Apparently our UCL ID gets you a lot of student discounts too, so it's not really necessary, again i'm only getting it for the extra discount on travel back home
