  • You must book a slot at least 48 hours in advance of attending campus. Click here to book a specific timeslot.
  • Use a local removal company that the University has partnered with. This also applies to off campus Warwick-accommodation managed properties!
  • Ask the University to donate your belongings to charity or dispose of anything else. More information here.
  • If you can’t get to your off-campus property managed by Warwick Accommodation to collect your belongings yourself, you can arrange for someone else to collect them for you, or contact your property manager.
  • Contact your letting agent/landlord to advise them of your plans, to plan for returning keys.
  • If you are unable to meet contractual obligations such as cleanliness due to having already left the property, discuss this with them too.
  • If you cannot collect your belongings before your contract ends, we recommend contacting your landlord or letting agent to discuss potential flexibility in your contract or flexibility in collecting belongings.
  • Take final meter readings and record the date, especially if you’re leaving prior to the end of your contract.
  • If you can, donate all non-perishable food to your local food bank. Food banks are still open during this time and you can find your closest one here.
  • If you have unwanted belongings and clothes, keep hold of them. Although many charity shops and recycling centres are closed, they can be donated once they re-open & it’s best to keep them out of the bin!
  • Ensure that all household waste is not left in your room or property by using the appropriate bins outside.
