Getting Prepared 2015/16
Before you arrive in Aberdeen and move in to student accommodation at Robert Gordon University there are a few things you need to consider:
Bedding & Other Items
Bedding is not provided in your accommodation.
- Lists the facilities, equipment, cutlery and crockery provided in each location.
At the Woolmanhill Flats we hold a stock of basic bedding packs that can be purchased in an emergency at a cost of £15.00. The pack consists of one pillow, one single duvet, one pillow case, one single duvet cover and a single fitted sheet. There are also shops close to all of our accommodation sites where bedding can be purchased.
If you are staying in our accommodation, core contents cover has already been arranged. However, you may wish to insure additional items that are not already covered.
These include bicycles, mobile phones (outside of your room) or any accidental damage to furnishings and fittings within the flat caused during your tenancy.
Please check your policy to see what is already covered, you can access this via RoomOnline once you have accepted your offer of accommodation.
Top up insurance can be arranged with Endsleigh's Student Halls Insurance.
