There are Box-Rooms available in each Residence for students to leave their belongings during vacations when they need to pack up their rooms. The keys to the Box-Rooms are handled ONLY by the Hall Warden, House Warden and Sub-Wardens of each Residence. 

  • Please note that all items left in the Box-Rooms are left at your own risk. The House Warden and Sub-Wardens will not be held responsible for any damages or loss.
  • No luggage or boxes etc. are to be left on the landings or in passages
  • No Box-Room keys are ever be made available to Conference Wardening Staff.
  • No Box-Rooms are opened during any vacation. Returning students requiring access to their belongings in Box-Rooms prior to the official commencement of the first term (i.e. Orientation Week or before) must arrange to do so in advance with the relevant House Warden and Sub-Wardens.
  • Please securely seal your boxes, trunks, and label your belongings clearly.
  • Number your boxes and record your belongings on the list on the Box-Room door. If you do not put your boxes in the Box-Rooms during the vacations and leave them in the passages they will be donated to charity.
