1. Getting here
You can find 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 David Kato College.
2. Collect your key and meet the team
When you arrive at David Kato, 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 get 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, David Kato and our Students’ Union will host a programme of welcome activities, led by the student committees, to welcome you to our college, introduce you to your new flatmates and begin your university journey.
