We’ve compiled this handy list to advise you what to bring with you to your new Student Housing House this year!!

1. ID (Passport, Driving Licence or Student ID)

In order to collect your keys we’ll need to complete a right to rent check, make sure you bring your ID as we’re not allowed to provide keys without it!

2. Bank Details (Sort code + Acc Number)

We’ll need your bank details so we know where to send your deposit back at the end of your tenancy

3. Cleaning Supplies

Whilst we’ll do everything we can to ensure that your property is clean and tidy for arrival, we advise you to bring cleaning supplies to keep the property in tip top condition.

4. Mattress Protector

At Student Housing we’re very environmentally conscious, we try to avoid landfill wherever possible by having mattresses professionally cleaned, we advise you bring a mattress protector with you to ensure the mattress stays clean throughout your tenancy!

5. Kitchen Items (Bin, Mop, Bucket, Toaster, Kettle)

We’ll supply you with a microwave, but you’ll be responsible to bring the kettle, toaster, bin, mop and bucket for the property (please take these with you at the end of your tenancy).
