No. You are free to come and go as you please.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic the guest policy is regularly reviewed. This policy will be updated to reflect guidance provided by The UK Government and Public Health England.
From Monday 19th July 2021, the guest policy has been updated to allow one guest per resident between the hours of 11:00am and 11:00pm. These guests must not stay overnight and are not permitted to enter or use communal spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms, unless in an emergency. Residents should ensure any guest is never left alone. The term guest also applies to any other resident living in a different building to yours (and sometimes flats) within Queen Mary accommodation.
Residents who breach this policy may face disciplinary action.
You are required to pay a deposit as an integral part of the acceptance process to book your room in halls. The deposit is non-refundable, the payment is reserved and credited against your final instalment of residential fees (minus any deductions or charges). All or part of the deposit may be retained by QMUL as a contribution towards any loss or costs suffered by QMUL, as a result of a cancellation made outside of the licence cancellation period.
All loss/damage charges will be charged via your residential account and an invoice will be sent to inform you of this charge by email, where you will be required to pay this amount immediately. A list of standard charges can be found in the Residents' Handbook.
