If you are in UCL Halls, taking an interruption will mean you will be required to leave your room, as you are no longer enrolled as a student at UCL.
Private student accommodation
The implications of your interruption will depend on your accommodation provider. You will need to review your agreement and discuss your circumstances with an appropriate staff member at your accommodation. You may be required to leave the accommodation because you are no longer a registered student. It is likely you will be liable for some fees and in some cases, you may be required to find a replacement tenant.
If you live in private accommodation, it is unlikely there will be an obligation for you to leave following a change to your student status. However, you may choose to leave and return home, in which case, you must consider the terms of your tenancy agreement and what this means for you. This can be complex and confusing, so we strongly recommend you seek advice from UCLU Rights and Advice. If you decide to stay in your private accommodation, it is important to note that as you are no longer a full time student, you may be required to pay Council Tax.
Expiry of your 18+ student Oyster photocard
Once you interrupt or withdraw from your studies, we are required to report this to TfL and you will no longer be eligible for the 18+ Oyster photocard.
