1. Getting here
Find detailed travel information on the maps, directions and parking web pages.
We will be operating a one-way parking system to minimise congestion on the day. Please look out for specific signage for Anne Lister College.
If you are arriving by car, please sign up for an arrival slot via your accommodation offer. This will help our college teams to manage the large number of students arriving on campus. As we have limited car parking spaces, we ask that you follow this process to help minimise congestion.
2. Collect your key and meet the team.
When you arrive at Anne Lister, you’ll be welcomed by the College Team and other volunteers. They’ll direct you where to go. Don't be afraid to ask them for help!
After meeting the College Team you can pick up your keycard and be directed to your room. Please remember to bring a form of photo ID.
If you’re arriving after 5pm, you’ll need to collect your keycard from the Campus East reception (located in the Law and Sociology Building).
3. Move into your room
Once you have your key card, it’s time to find your room and begin moving in.
Your College Team will be around all day to help with any questions or problems you may have.
4. Say hi to your flatmates
Once you’re familiar with your new surroundings and have unpacked your belongings, why not say hi to your flatmates? Your kitchen is usually a good place to do so.
The College Team will be in touch soon, to let you know about the weeks ahead.
Keeping up to date
As we get closer to the start of the semester, we'll email you with information and advice on how to prepare. These emails will be sent to your University of York email account. Find any that you may have missed below.
Your first weeks
During your first week, Anne Lister College and our Students’ Unions will deliver a programme of introductory activities, led by our student committee, to welcome you to our college, help you get to know fellow students and enjoy all that Anne Lister College has to offer.
