    Looked at the term dates for next year, it runs from 1 Sept - 2 July.

    The accom letter says the licence agreement runs from 20 September - 30 May.

    I can see the extra day at the start of the agreement is moving in day but cant understand the 30 May end date.

    What happens for the more than 4 weeks at the end of the agreement?

    Do many students stay in the area over the summer too? I was considering doing this, so if anyone has done it where do you stay?

    Um,
    well I know that the Halls where I go to uni offer the option of living in halls over the summer.
    If not people look and rent accommodation that they usually will live in over the summer and the next academic year around the area of the uni.
    So to me its normal to stay in the summer

    There's 3 semesters:
    - September - December
    - January - April
    - May - July

    The first two semesters are fully timetabled (so you have to be living on campus, or at least still coming into Uni). The last semester is used for exams and sorting out any resits you'll have to do in August, so you don't have to be living on campus although you'd still have to commute for exams and such (1st year exams finish fairly early.. I finished mine in the first week of May and have been on summer hoilday ever since ).

    If you do still need to be living in halls in the 3rd semester, I'm sure you can ask them to stay longer. I've seen people still living there in July!

    It varies course to course but most first years finish around late March/early April and exams are usually over by mid may.

    I finished 3rd April, had two exams at the end of the month then I left. I had to pay up until 8th June, even though I wasn't living there. Most people moved out straight after their exams.

    You can live in university accommodation over the summer but it's on a first come basis and is limited.

    Alternatively, if you have a house sorted for your second year, you could move there after the 30th May depending on your landlord.
