Move In Day


Move-in at Alban runs from 10:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday 1st October. Your room allocation will not depend on what time you arrive during the day, but it is important to let us know in advance if you are going to be late.

During the Day

The hall subbies and a small army of student volunteers will be on hand during the day to help you move into your new home. Once you arrive, you will be directed to the check-in room where you will need to register with us before you can be shown to your room. At this point, you will also be given your College photo ID card and Alban Hall ID cards which you use to get in and out of the building. It’s really important that you upload your photo in advance so we can have these ready for you when you get here!

While you’re settling in and making your room your own, a relaxing tea and coffee will be available to parents before saying goodbye. Our volunteers will also be able to show you around some of the different areas in the hall and help you become familiar with the surroundings.

In the Evening

Later on, there will be a compulsory welcome talk from our Warden for all residents. This will be your chance to meet the wardening team and you’ll be informed about important information for during your time in halls.

After that, we will be providing warm food for everyone while you get to know eachother, followed by a treasure hunt around the local area. Stay tuned for further information on the freshers events we’ll be organising in the days that follow!
