In line with the current Government guidance, UCL is advising current residents to stay in London and not travel home during the current national lockdown. However, if you departed your halls between 3rd-27th December 2020, UCL will reimburse you for the time that you have not resided in UCL Accommodation over the winter closure period and up to Sunday 24th April 2021.

If you wish to be reimbursed, you must notify UCL of your new expected return date through the UCL Accommodation Portal. If you wish to terminate your license agreement, you will still need to follow the Notice to Quit Procedure as stated in the UCL Accommodation General Regulations.

Please see these FAQs for more information.
