MOVING IN CHECKLIST

Thank you for choosing CODE Student Accommodation as your new home, we can’t wait to welcome you. We know moving can be a stressful time, so we’ve created a handy checklist to ensure your move goes as smoothly as possible.

There are plenty of local supermarkets that sell the majority of the things you need, so don’t panic if you forget a few bits and pieces.

Alternatively, you can buy most items including kitchen and bedroom bundles from www.unikitout.com/collections/code, use CODE10 at the checkout to secure a 10% discount. If you choose to place an order, you will benefit from your items being delivered to CODE in time for your arrival for free when you spend over £70.

Before you arrive, remember to upload your photo to your student portal so we can recognise you when you come to move in.

The CODE team will be on-site during your move in period to help with anything you need, so please do ask.

You can also chat to us online 7 days a week by visiting www.codestudents.co.uk
