Accommodation fees during lockdown


 

On 6 January we wrote to you to provide details of the national lockdown and the Government instruction for universities to move all teaching online. On Wednesday 27 January 2021, the Government instructed universities to continue to deliver classes online until at least 8 March, with an expectation this will continue to Easter for the majority of students.

Due to this announcement, we have made the decision that all classes will remain online until the end of this term (Friday 26 March) and we will automatically extend the removal of rent until 31 March 2021 if you have a contract for on-campus accommodation, you’re not using your room and you’ve applied for rent removal. 

If, due to the extension of the Government lockdown, you decide that, for academic or wellbeing reasons, you want to leave on-campus accommodation, or have not yet, and would now like to apply for rent removal click here (form will be live from 1 February). 

If you are unable to study at home, you are permitted to return to campus but cannot then return home until after lockdown ends. If you have applied to have rent removed for the lockdown period, and you wish to return before 31 March, or do not wish to extend your rent removal, you will need to notify studentservices@royalholloway.ac.uk , and give us five days’ notice, so access to your room can be arranged and your rent removal cancelled from the date you return.
