Moving into halls

We can't wait to welcome you into your new campus room and help you settle into life at Brunel. 

We are following government and public health guidelines to ensure that moving into your accommodation on campus is a safe, smooth and simple process. 

How to collect your keys and move in 

What should I do before I arrive on campus?

You must complete your online registration before you collect your room keys, you do this here. If you are not registered you will be unable to collect your room key.

How can I collect my room key?

When you arrive on campus, you can go straight to the Wilfred Brown building to collect your room keys. You can collect your keys from 8.30am until 7.45pm. You will meet a member of the Student Living team who will issue your keys and provide you with all information you need about living on campus. If you are unable to arrive within the times available or are running late, please contact res@brunel.ac.uk.

Where can I park?

You can park on campus in one of our zones, depending on your allocated hall. Check our campus map to find your zone. Brunel is easily accessible by car, bus or train. You can find out more here 

Can family and friends help me move in?

You can bring your family and friends onto campus, however only two members are able to help you move your belongings into your room. This is so we can limit the number of people in our hall buildings.

Can I get a trolley to help me move my belongings?

You will be able to hire a trolley when you move in. A deposit will need to be paid and the trolley will need to be returned to the collection point. Check our campus map for the collection points. 

How will I be able to move in safely?

It is important to maintain a safe distance in corridors, stairways and lifts, hand sanitisation units are available at each main entrance. A maximum of two people will be allowed to accompany you. Please be aware, where buildings have a lift, only one person will be permitted to use the lift at any time. Where buildings do not have lifts, please observe the guidance of walking on the left, limiting the touching of handrails and maintain social distancing where possible. Please read all the expected behaviours for campus here

 Your ResLife Ambassadors (RAs)

We have plenty of activities to help you settle into your your new home and get to know your flatmates. You'll be introduced to your ResLife Ambassadors (RAs) once you arrive, they are all current students who have lived in halls before. They'll be hosting a quizzes and other in person and virtual activities to help you settle in over the first few days

Collecting your ID(entification card) and accessing letters

How do I get my Brunel ID?

During the registration task you would have uploaded a photo. Once we have this, your card should be ready to collect from the Student Centre in the Howell Building on campus from the start of term (please allow at least seven days for us to process this).  If you have a UK address and opted for the ID card to be posted, it will arrive within 7 days of us approving your photo.


Until you are fully registered you wont be able to access any official letters, except your offer letter from Admissions. Once you are fully registered, you will be able to go back into your eVision and you will have a new tab at the top called My Letters, here you can self serve for a wide range of letters.
