renting University accommodation

Rental agreements for University flats and halls run September to June (40 weeks), or September to August (50 weeks) http://www.kingston.ac.uk/accommodation/.  It has happened that some of our overseas students have lost their accommodation three weeks before they were due to complete their Final Major Project.  This is extremely awkward timing.  The ideal rental agreement might run for, say, 60 weeks – to allow for early arrival for induction and pre-sessional English language courses, and some extra time after hand-in for Induction.  KU does not offer 60 week rentals, so some students find new accommodation in June, others make temporary arrangements with friends, family and hotels to tide-them over/move around in August.   Either way, best to be forwarned, and prepared and check out the link to the university calendar on the KU accommodation site.
