STUDENT INDUCTION SEPTEMBER 2020
HELLO and WELCOME to edYOUcate!
These are challenging times and we understand there is some uncertainty around what being at university will look like for the coming academic year, but we are committed to trying to adapt where we can for your safety and wellbeing. We will be providing you with advice and guidance on keeping safe, and working together we look forward to a positive start to the 2020 academic year.
This is the online resource created by Primo to ensure your residential experience is a stress free one. Quite simply it's your 'Virtual Accommodation Handbook'. How cool is that!
Whether you want to refer to your contract, check how to report a repair, how many times we 'inspect' your room (and how much notice we give, so you can tidy up(lol)), how to pay your rent (yes, please!) - ALL the answers are here!
As well as accommodation specific information (the 'Induction') we will be providing some more information we feel will be useful to our student tenants. This information will be on the site shortly. Don't forget to pop back to the site regularly, so that you can see what information we have on here - it might just provide you with the answer to that problem or issue! (f we don't have the answer, we'll find someone who can).
If you're an International Student, there are additional resources 'just for you', to help you settle into your new life here in the UK. We also have resources on here for 'Freshers'. We understand - it's not easy leaving home for the first time. Why not take a look at the 'Your Life' section. Here you'll find lots of hints and tips to make moving away from home and coming to uni as simple as 'ABC'.
THANK YOU for choosing a PRIMO managed property as your ‘accommodation of choice’. We hope you enjoy your time with us and that our accommodation facilities, including the social facilities, help you make life-long friendships. In order that we can see how we're doing, you can have your say by completing the survey you'll receive at some point during your stay, please complete it - Thank you!
Primo's philosophy is to work in PARTNERSHIP with student tenants. What this means is that our procedures, supported by ANUK National Code accreditation help us to deliver a positive 'residential experience'.
We are adding a section on COVID-19 information so we can keep you updated on Government /Public Health England Advice. Additionally, we'll also be expanding our information on mental health support in our building locations - so that we can guide you to the best possible support should you have a problem.
GOOD LUCK, STAY SAFE and please do ENJOY your time with us!
YOUR LIVING (INDUCTION/VIRTUAL HANDBOOK)
This section also includes a link to the 'How to Rent' guide, produced by the Department for Communities and Local Government, useful for tenants.
The stereotypical image of students is that you're all having a fab time, with not a care in the world. Of course, you will be having a fab time, but from time to time issues occur and a little guidance would be useful. This section deals with managing your finances, healthy eating, making wise choices in terms of lifestyle and also support mechanisms out there you can call on, should you need to.
It's never too early to start thinking about your future. All the skills, knowledge and experience you develop over the next few years will contribute to your future success. If it's volunteering or work experience you're after, you'll find useful information and resources in this section.
