Important Information for Restart Students


It is important that you keep us informed of any change in your contact details, particularly your current email address, so that we can ensure that you receive updates with regard to your status with the University. You can let us know of any changes by emailing (undergraduate) or via the Postgraduate Enquiry Form


If you are living in University campus accommodation you are required to vacate your room and return your keys to Senate House reception. Any refund of rent will be calculated from the date of your withdrawal or the date you vacated your accommodation and returned your room keys, whichever is the later. This does not apply to University off-campus accommodation. If you have any questions about your departure from your accommodation please contact Warwick Accommodation at Senate House Reception or on +44 (0)24 76 523772 or by email to accommodation at warwick dot ac dot uk.


If you are studying at the University under a Tier 4 Visa this change to your record will affect your immigration status and your permission to remain in the UK. Please note that if you have been issued with a Warwick Tier 4 Certificate of Acceptance to Study (CAS), the University is required to notify the Home Office of any change to your enrolment status. The approval of your request to restart your course next year will result in the University withdrawing your CAS, which will mean that you no longer have a valid Tier 4 sponsor. For this and any other visa issues you are advised to seek confidential advice regarding your visa status from the International Students' Office: Information about the visa implications of changing your student status is available from:


You are advised that the change of status detailed in the email you received from the University may affect whether you remain eligible for a Council Tax exemption. You are strongly advised to contact the relevant local authority's Council Tax office for further guidance. Please also note that if the local authority determines that you must now pay Council Tax you may be eligible for a discount if all other residents in your house have student exemptions. You must make those you share with aware of this change to your status as it may also affect any student disregard they have applied for.
