From booking through to moving in

Friargate Court has remained open and operational throughout the pandemic, we have spent this time adapting, creating, maintaining, improving and getting ready to welcome you. 

We know there's plenty of questions during this period of transition and we want to offer you peace of mind.  Here are the steps you'll take from booking your room through to moving in.

1. Choosing your flexible start date

If your university start date is postponed you can change yours too, free of charge.  All students looking to stay at Friargate Court for the academic year starting September 2020 are eligible.

2. Checking in & moving in

To make your arrival as smooth as possible we'll be allocating time slots for all new residents on their move in day, to reduce queues and over-crowding at reception.

3. Isolating

Travelling from abroad means you'll be required to isolate for 14 days to meet the government guidelines.  We're supporting this by offering 2 weeks rent free* while you're in quarantine at Friargate Court.


*Valid to all 6+ month contracts

4. Sharing safe spaces

We've implemented enhanced safety and distancing measures throughout Riverside House to make sure we're doing everything we can to support safe shared living.


Stopping the spread

We continue to monitor the situation to guarantee that our services and resident support can be adapted as required, and continue without interruption.
