Collecting your keys

Keys can be collected from the start of your contract. Please see the UWE Bristol accommodation portal for further details of the start of your contract.

How to collect your keys/access card

To collect your keys/access card you must:

  • make sure you have completed the accommodation e-induction – details of how to do this will be emailed to you before you arrive
  • if you are a UK student, make sure that you have set up your Direct Debit via the UWE Bristol accommodation portal to pay your rent
  • if you are an international student, make sure that you have completed the recurring card payment via the UWE Bristol accommodation portal, unless you have made alternative arrangements with us
  • print and bring your key collection form which will have been emailed to you before your contract start date
