Arriving early or late

Arriving early, before your contract starts  
You may be able to arrive before your contract starts, but the process depends on which hall you're in for term time. For details, visit: Arriving early at your hall 

Arriving late  
If you expect to arrive later than the official arrival date, you must contact the Residential Services Office. We'll remind you to do this in the online halls induction (LSE halls and Sidney Webb House only).
