Getting Prepared 2013/14
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 & Kitchen Essentials
You will need to provide your own bedding (duvet/duvet cover, sheets and pillows), towels, cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment.
You may wish to purchase these items and have them delivered prior to your arrival.
Click 2 Campus and Gailarde provide a variety of bedding & kitchen packs for you.
You should order at least a week (seven days) before your arrival to ensure your items arrive on time.
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.
Car Parking & Secure Bike Storage
Car parking is available at most sites and you will find the relevant details to apply for a parking permit online when you receive your offer of accommodation.
