You will need to discuss this with the reception team as it will depend on when your current tenancy ends and the new one begins, and whether someone else will be staying in your room over the summer.
We normally advise students to contact a storage company in the area if they cannot keep their belongings in their room.
You can return your keys to reception in person or you can post them through reception’s post box in a key return envelope which you can collect from reception. Please make sure the keys are labelled with your name, room and flat number. If the keys are not returned you will be charged for a replacement key and fob.
You may return your keys before the end of the tenancy, this will not constitute the termination of the agreement and tenants will waive their right to return to the property, to access the accommodation or request keys at any time prior to the end of the tenancy.
