With regards to the unoccupied rooms in 2020-21 please note that we either
didn’t fill the rooms or the students haven’t yet arrived on campus.  For

flexible accommodation start date to students.  Therefore students can
arrive any time during the academic year and their accommodation contract
will start from the date they pick up their keys.
