Check-In and Collection of Keys
Guests may check-in to their accommodation from 12pm onwards. Keys may be collected from the Accommodation Office prior to 1pm on weekdays Monday to Friday. At other times the keys can be collected from the Security Lodge at Front Gate. To prevent confusion Guest Room keys cannot be collected by the College host prior to the arrival of the guest in College. Each guest will receive a welcome letter containing the keys to their rooms, confirmation of the length of the stay, location of their accommodation, breakfast details and where appropriate an invoice.
Cooked breakfast will be served in the dining room on the ground floor of House 40 between 7.30am and 9.30am.
Guests are requested to checkout by 10am on the day of departure. Keys should be left either in the Guest Rooms, Accommodation Office or at Front Gate.
