Arrival information

Congratulations! You’re officially a Loughborough student. Now you can start thinking about what you want to bring to University and what clubs and societies interest you. But first, take a note of your arrival date.

At Loughborough, we allocate students with a specific arrival date – with so many students travelling, we try and organise it so that you don’t all arrive at once. Arrival week is scheduled before your first day of term to ensure you have time to enrol, attend your induction meeting and get to know other new students.

Tuesday 24th September 2019

Wednesday 25th September 2019

Thursday 26th September 2019

Please note that first year postgraduate students who have been allocated halls accommodation (with the arrival slot of Thursday the 26th September) can amend their arrival date to Sunday 29th September upon request. 

Book an arrival slot

In order to ensure that ‘moving in’ goes as smoothly as possible, please book an arrival slot. We can arrange for you to collect your keys, provide designated parking and ensure you have the help you need to move in. If you do not arrive on your allocated day, we cannot guarantee that your room will be reserved for you and you might be at risk of losing your room. Please contact us if you think you will arrive late.

Arriving outside of freshers' week?

If you are unable to arrive on the date specified by the Student Accommodation Centre, then please contact us as soon as possible. If we are not informed then you might be at risk of losing your allocated room.

Once you have contacted us, we can allocate you a new arrival slot. This will be at a later date than the one previously specified. We are unable to accept earlier arrivals, unless you are an international student and you have provided us with your flight information.

If you require further information then please get in touch with us as soon as possible.
