Hi,

Can the students just arrive anytime on the Sunday or will they be given a moving in time slot in a couple of weeks or so?

Is parking available close to the Uni Halls to drop off?

Will their be any Welcome Week or Freshers Week activities at any point on the Sunday or will this not start until the Monday?

When will students receive their timetables please?

Thanks

I've already got my timetable, idk much about freshers tho. There seems to be some info on the student union website but idk if buying tickets would be worth it.
I haven’t received. timetable yet, or a move in slot I have only booked accommodation.

But I only found out I had a place from UCAS and then had to phone the Clearing helpline to be given my registration number. Have heard nothing about a moving in slot yet.

Hey,

Usually students will be provided with a time slot - I would recommend emailing [email protected] to confirm when this is and please check any junk mail folders in case you may have missed it :smile:

There will be parking available close to all halls for dropping off and usually there are large trolleys etc that you can use so that you don't have to carry everything which we know can be tiring! There will be lots of staff and student ambassadors around to help too. You might find this photo album a helpful insight into what you can expect from move-in day:

Timetables are beginning to be issued so you should hopefully receive access soon if you haven't already - have you tried logging into MyUCLan at all? Here's a useful couple of links too:

Welcome Info
Welcome FAQ's

Freshers activities will start from 22 September and a full list of events can be found on our SU's website.

Hope this helps and we look forward to seeing you very soon!
