10 Tips When Moving Out of Your Student Accommodation

Moving out of your student accommodation can be a daunting task, especially if it's your first time. Between packing up your belongings, cleaning the space, and dealing with deposits, it can be overwhelming. To help make the process smoother, we've put together 10 tips for moving out of your student accommodation:

  1. Give yourself time: Moving out can take longer than you expect, so make sure to give yourself enough time to get everything done.

  2. Start decluttering early: Don't wait until the last minute to declutter your belongings. Start early and get rid of things you don't need.

  3. Plan your packing: Plan ahead and make a list of everything you need to pack. This will help you stay organized and ensure that you don't forget anything.

  4. Pack a moving day essentials box: This should include everything you need for your first night in your new place, such as bedding, toiletries, and a change of clothes.

  5. Label your boxes: Label your boxes with the contents and the room they belong in. This will make unpacking easier.

  6. Hire a professional cleaning service: If you're required to leave the accommodation clean, consider hiring a professional cleaning service to ensure you get your full deposit back.

  7. Take photos of the space: Before you leave, take photos of the space to prove its condition. This can come in handy if there are any disputes with your landlord.

  8. Cancel utilities: Make sure to cancel your utilities before you move out to avoid being charged for services you're not using.

  9. Notify your landlord: Let your landlord know when you're planning to move out and provide them with your new address.

  10. Get your deposit back: To get your full deposit back, make sure you leave the space in good condition and follow any specific instructions from your landlord.

By following these tips, you can make your move out of your student accommodation a smoother and less stressful process. Good luck!
