Compliments and complaints

If you’ve received good service from a member of staff or there’s something you’re not happy with about your accommodation, speak to Customer Services about it first. They log all compliments and handle all complaints according to the ACS Complaints Procedure.

Cycle storage

There are dedicated cycle stores throughout the residences. Just ask Customer Services for the location of the store nearest to you. Cycles must not be taken into buildings or stored in shared areas (e.g. corridors, landings) as they obstruct fire escape routes. If found in these areas, cycles will be removed and you’ll need to pay a £35 retrieval charge.

At the end of your accommodation contract, please remember to take your cycle with you when you vacate – or it will be donated to charity. Please note that bicycles are not covered as part of your insurance. 

Cycle parking locations across the residences and University campus

Depending on where you live, there are different ways to access the cycle stores.

If you live in an apartment (e.g. Froggatt, Kinder) - get your key fob activated at Customer Services. In all other properties (e.g. Broad Lane Court) - pick up a cycle store key or get your swipe card activated at Customer Services.

Allen Court cycle storage

We recommend storing your bikes in the lockable cycle storage undercover in Block H. Use your fob to access the cycle store - you’ll need to get it activated at reception first. Bicycles must not be taken into buildings or stored in shared areas (e.g. corridors, landings, bedrooms) as they obstruct fire escape routes.

Please note that your bike is not covered by your insurance cover. You will need to take out additional insurance cover for this.
