Staff moving into or out of University accommodation
The below advice is only applicable to members of staff who are planning on moving into or out of University staff accommodation during the coronavirus outbreak. Otherwise, tenants’ accommodation should remain unaffected.
- In situations where tenants cannot move out due to the coronavirus outbreak, the University will extend their tenancy for a short period where possible, provided that the property has not already been re-let.
- In situations where tenants cannot move into their allocated property due to the coronavirus outbreak, but who have already committed to the tenancy (deposit, initial rent paid), the tenant will remain liable for rent and bills until the property is re-let. However, the University will do its utmost to minimize the costs.
- In situations where the property has already been let, but the tenant is self-isolating, we will aim to offer an alternative property to the incoming tenant.
- If the tenant chooses not to vacate as a result of flight cancellations or another circumstance, and the property has already been re-let, the University will endeavour to offer alternative suggestions for accommodation.
