Room Inventory

Furnishings, fittings and equipment
Once you arrive at Aston each resident is asked to check and sign a room inventory and a statement relating to the condition of the fabric and decoration of the flat/room.

The inventory contents vary depending on the type of accommodation provided. Any discrepancies or inaccuracies should be recorded on the inventory, which must then be returned within 48 hours of your key collection to your Residence Officer or Lakeside Reception.

Students are individually responsible for their own room and are collectively responsible for furnishings, equipment and cleanliness in the shared parts of the buildings.

Inspections are carried out each term and at the end of the Licence period.


Residents are charged for any missing items or damage caused to any part of the accommodation. Residents are not permitted to install additional furniture or electrical appliances (see Residents’ handbook & Licence) in rooms or communal areas within residences.

Residents are reminded that personal belongings should not be left on the premises after termination of the agreement – see Residents’ handbook & Licence.

International students who need to arrange storage of personal effects until the following academic year, can obtain details from The Hub (Upper Foyer in the Main Building).
