In order for your departure to run smoothly we ask that you read through the following information.
Contract end date
If you are an Undergraduate your contract will end on 15th June 2019 and for all Postgraduates your contract will end on 31st August 2019. Please move out by 10am on the allocated day. You will not be able to stay in your room any later than this date. If you wish to extend your contract over the summer period, please visit Summer Accommodation.
Prior to departure
Before handing in your keys, please complete the following:
- Clean your room and bathroom to a reasonable standard

To receive back your full deposit, you must complete all tasks in the “departure checklist” (below) and your room must be free from damage. If any damage is found during inspection, we will cross check against the inventory form you filled in at check in before charging you accordingly. If your room is tidy and free from damage your deposit will be returned within six weeks from the end date of your contract. For a full list of cleaning and damage charges click here.
On the day of your departure, trolleys will be available to use free of charge from reception. Please ensure you have all your belongings packed and ready to go prior to borrowing the trolley. You will need your Student ID card to borrow a trolley which must be returned to reception. Please note during busy periods we will limit trolleys to one per person.
You can find car parking options nearby here. Please be advised you will be issued with a ticket if you park in an undesignated parking area.
‘Leave Liverpool Tidy’ bags are available in all communal kitchens for you to donate items. Please place bedding, clothing, shoes or equipment that you no longer require into these bags and leave them in donation boxes at Vine Court. Please do not place food items in these bags. All items will be recycled or donated to charity.
It is your responsibility to remove all belongings from your bedroom, shared bathroom and communal kitchen area. We will contact you via phone or email if we find any items of high value (e.g. passport, driving licence, laptop) and will store them for a maximum of 28 days after you have checked out.
All other items will either be donated to charity, recycled or disposed of. Read our policy here.
Mail and parcels
You will need to change your postal address with family, friends, and your bank and on websites such as Amazon. We will hold your post and parcels for two weeks after you check out, but after this it will be returned to the sender.
You can check out any time before Saturday 15 June 2019.
On the day you check out, bring your key card and post box key to Vine Court reception and sign out. Please let a member of staff know you are checking out to avoid any confusion over items in your room. To help you with your move, please refer to the departure check list at the end of this article.
