What happens to my personal possessions during vacation?
The University cannot take any responsibility for belongings left in any college over the vacation time. Some colleges, without taking responsibility, can offer secure boxes for personal possessions.
Most colleges do offer extended lets of 33 and 38 weeks to cover the vacation period; and at Queen's Campus, your residence charge includes Christmas and Easter vacations. You can therefore stay over the vacations and leave your belongings in your room. You must however make sure you have adequate insurance for your belongings.
Please note that if your accommodation is used for the conference trade during vacations then you will be required to move your possessions to another room over the vacation period.
Most postgraduate accommodation is offered on a 50-week let period which means your accommodation is yours to use for storage for the year. Check with your college if you have any concerns.
