    Hi

    Just wondered if anyone is considering moving in early. Move in date I think is 14th but that means we miss the first week of welcome and induction. The uni suggest that we arrive by 9th and all their contracts run from 2nd so wondering why the IQ ones start two weeks later.

    Is this just a fiendish way to extract more money from us?

    Hi, we don't run iQ any more I'm afraid, it's a separate private provider. That's why they are different dates. Contact our accommodation team if it's a problem and they'll do their best to help

    Hi Janet

    I know it's privately run but it does seem strange that they haven't liaised with you guys and got the same moving in dates so that everyone is there for the welcome and induction weeks. I believe they have been renovating over the summer according to the blog and they do say if your room is available you can move in earlier (at extra cost) but as I say it's strange that they run their contracts from different dates to what the university actually recommend.

    Hi JOD246, I know it's weird but unfortunately as they are now a private company they can do their own thing and don't need to work in partnership with us. Any problems please do contact our accommodation team, details in my previous message

    Hi Preziosavita, as a Clearing student you will be sent all the same information as everyone else, it just may take a little longer to come through. You can see it all online as well www.salford.ac.uk/getready
