Halls Inductions

Life in halls is different from life in a family home, or life in a student flat share in the private sector. To make sure that you know all you need to have an enjoyable and safe time in Halls, we’ve prepared an induction programme.

Please note that it is compulsory for halls residents to attend these inductions as the induction includes essential safety information.

Step 1: Moving in

In your room, you will find a letter about Halls Inductions, and other halls literature. In Glamorgan Court / Mountain Halls, this includes a Welcome Letter from Accommodation Services.

In the kitchen of your flat, posters will also tell you about upcoming meetings.

Step 2: Compulsory Halls Induction Meeting

As a condition of your tenancy agreement you are required to attend your compulsory Halls induction meeting.

The Halls Induction Meeting is also your opportunity to ask any questions you may have. The meeting is organised by the Resident / Welfare Tutors, but members of staff from Accommodation Services and other University departments and outside agencies will also be there to answer questions. There are some short presentations about health, safety and security in halls.

You can also view the video about Meningitis in residential accommodation here:

After the inductions

There will be regular “Resident Tutor Drop-in Sessions” at the HUB, throughout term. These are not compulsory to attend, as they are casual opportunities for you to offer any comments, feedback, or raise any issues you might have.

Late starters

If you arrive after the main enrolment period, you can find some of the information from the inductions as downloadable presentation slides on this page. However, these do not include any questions asked and answered during the meetings. The Resident Tutors will also organise an induction meeting for students starting courses in January and February, depending on demand and student numbers.
