Having looked carefully at the range of accommodation available, students will be expected to make an on line application for their preferred choice of residence, giving one other alternative. It should be understood that the selection process is done entirely centrally and the allocation of a place at a residence will not be controlled by the personal selection of a member of the hall staff. Badock Hall is regularly oversubscribed, if this is to be your choice it must be a first choice.
From receipt of accommodation offer there is only a couple of days for students to register their acceptance on line. Make sure you check your emails from late August and respond before the given date. No other offer of accommodation will be forthcoming from the University of Bristol.
Students coming to Badock Hall will be contacted by the Hall Student Support Administrator week commencing 8th September with details of the arrival arrangements. Every student is allocated a timed slot for arrival on Sunday 21st September 2014. Each car has only 45 minutes to unload belongings and vacate the parking area to allow others with later appointments to offload. Remember to pack in containers easily carried up hills and stairs - Badock Hall has no lifts, some top floor rooms are up 8 flights of stairs, if you have an early day arrival slot this is because your room is on an upper floor.
Your acceptance of accommodation will indicate the type of room allocated to you. All new students need to read carefully the various documents in the Facts & Figures section and the basic hall rules to ensure they appreciate the way in which the Hall is governed.
There is no roadside parking outside the Badock grounds; in line with University regulations, if a resident does not obtain a Hall parking permit they should not bring a car to Bristol during their year in hall. The Hall has very few student parking bays available for the coming year. Applications will be assessed on a 'need' basis.
