Living with uS: How to check in to your Unite Students home

It’s almost time for your big move. Checking in is easy, nothing to worry about - but there are a few things to know before you set off.

Everything you need to know is at our checking in page, but here are the six essential steps.

1) Know your tenancy start date

Your tenancy start date is the earliest date you can check in. You can find your start date on the first page of your tenancy agreement - and you can find that by logging into your Unite Students account.

2) Find your photo ID

You must bring a valid form of photo ID with you when you check in. You can bring your passport, driving licence, or national identity card.

3) Find out where you can park

Your new home will have limited parking, but the on-site team will be able to recommend the perfect place to unload.

Start by looking at the welcome guide for your building, and double-check with the team on the day. They should be able to recommend a longer-stay car park, in case your family or friends are helping you move in and they want to stay for a few hours.

4) Tell us your arrival plans

To make your arrival as smooth as possible, download the free MyUnite app and let us know when you’re planning to arrive. Select a date and time, and we’ll do our best to check you in quickly and easily.

If you don’t see Get ready for check-in on the app main menu, it means your Unite Students home isn’t using this feature. Your property team or university will contact you with any specific instructions for check-in, otherwise you can arrive any time from the start of your tenancy.

Download the free MyUnite app for Android or Apple.

5) Collect your keys

When you arrive, come straight to the reception with your photo ID. The team will have your keys ready and will be happy to show you where your room is.

6) Unload the car

Once you’ve been shown where your room is, all that’s left is to unload the car and take your things in. Again, there’ll be plenty of friendly staff around to help you.

Then, once you’re in...

… there’s no time like now to start settling in. Depending on where you’re living, there may be welcome events going on at your building - so keep an eye out for those.
