Four simple steps to move into Vita Student

It’s the summer before you go to university, so you sure as hell want to enjoy it. You should be spending more time with your friends and family, and less time stressing about preparations.

That’s why we have broken down the process of moving to Vita Student into four simple steps. You’ll need to complete all of these to ensure you’re set for 22/23.

Firstly, you will need to complete your payment via your Vita Student account, using our secure payment portal TransferMate.

TransferMate has promised to plant a tree for every payment made. So not only will you be saving money on banking fees and foreign exchange commissions, but you’ll also be helping to save the planet too.

Once you have completed your payment, you can then check-in online. It’s really easy to do. Just log into your account at, and follow the steps to check-in.

  • Let us know what time you plan to arrive by booking a move-in appointment
  • Complete your online check-in form

Even if you’ve already lived at Vita Student previously, you will still need to check in online for 2022/23 .

If you lived with us for 21/22, and there is a gap between your 2 bookings , you will still need to book your move-in appointment to let us know when you will be returning. If there is no gap between your contracts, your “move-in date” will be automatically set as the first day of your contract, but you still need to complete your online check-in form.

Next, it’s time for your final preparations.

Confirm your contents insurance

Contents insurance is included in your rent, through our insurance partner Endsleigh.

However, before you arrive you must remember to activate your insurance. To do this, simply download the Endsleigh App and confirm your cover.

You may have some higher-value items that aren’t included in your policy – so it’s important to check as you may need some additional cover. When you download the app, you can check what’s included, and see if you need to do anything else.

Once you’ve downloaded the App and activated your account, you can access all their well-being resources to help you through your first year at uni. Plus, you could be in with a chance of winning £100 a week for the entire year!

It takes less than five minutes to confirm your insurance. If you ask us, taking the time to ensure your belongings are protected is a no-brainer.
