STUDENT INDUCTION SEPTEMBER 2017

HELLO and WELCOME to edYOUcate! 

edYOUcate 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 the 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!

Additionally, we've just upgraded edYOUcate to the latest version of Moodle. What this means is that, if you're out and about and have an accommodation problem, let's say you lose your keys (it does happen from time to time), you can easily find out how to get a new set (who to call, how long it will take and so on).

As well as accommodation specific information (the 'Induction') we  are preparing some other information we feel will be useful to our student tenants.  This 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! 

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. 

Primo's philosophy is to work in PARTNERSHIP with student tenants.  What this means is that our procedures, supported by ANUK National Code accreditation (Further info here) help us to deliver a positive 'residential experience' (our PROMISE).  Additionally, as a first time renter, please take a look at this guide provided by the Department for Communities and Local Government.

GOOD LUCK and please do ENJOY your time with us! 

From The Primo Team ( You can contact us 24/7 Call :01204 360920)
 
   

YOUR LIVING (INDUCTION)
Accommodation Information/Induction.  This section includes information on all the procedures in place to make living in a Primo managed property as stress free as possible.  Remember, we want to work with you - in PARTNERSHIP - to deliver a great residential experience (our PROMISE). By taking a little time to read this section, you're helping us deliver this to you. You'll be asked to read this section prior to moving in, as a form of induction.  Please do so, as it will really help you settle in. Additionally, all our contact details are in this section, so you'll always be able to get in touch with us. 

This section also includes a link to the 'How to Rent' guide, produced by the Department for Communities and Local Government, useful for tenants.

Your Learning (being updated - lots of lovely resources coming soon)
Links to academic skill development resources to support your development as an ‘independent learner’.

Your Learning

Your Life (being updated - lots of great hints and tips coming soon)

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.

Life
Your Future (being updated - some great resources coming soon)

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.

    Welcome to university!

    Starting can be a wonderful and exciting experience, but it can also bring its own unique challenges. It's natural to feel nervous or overwhelmed during the first few weeks at university, and it can be a while before you feel like you've found your feet.  Take a look at this advice from the Student Minds website here.  Take care x
