Overnight Stay Request

If you’d like to request an overnight stay for a guest, you can submit a request form online using the Student Portal.

Please note that there’s a limit to the number of overnight guests staying in our residences on any given night (first-come-first-served basis) so make sure to register your guest at least 24 hours in advance!

Guests can only stay for a maximum of two consecutive nights and any resident who has an unauthorised guest will be subject to disciplinary procedures.

And don’t forget…you are responsible for the behaviour of your guest!

Want to Organise a Get-Together?

Although anti-social behaviour is not tolerated at our student residences, we do recognise that student life is a time for having fun! Events can be organised by residents but must be approved beforehand.

If you’d like to organise a get-together, please download an Event Request Form and return to reception at least 48 hours before the event.

Please note that an event that does not finish on time or causes complaints/problems for residents or Campus Living staff will be ended immediately and the organiser will be subject to disciplinary procedures.

Please also bear in mind that not all requests will be granted; they are dealt with on a first-come-first-served basis.
