  1. Secure your space 

Before you lock the door behind you, take a moment to secure your HudLets residence. Ensure all windows and doors are properly locked. Notify your HudLets property manager about your absence, providing an extra layer of security and peace of mind. Remember, a well-secured space ensures a worry-free holiday for you and your belongings. 

  1. Clear out perishables 

The last thing you want after a delightful holiday break is to return to a science experiment in your refrigerator. Be proactive and clear out any perishable items before you leave. Consider donating non-perishables to local food banks to spread the holiday spirit and minimize waste. 

  1. Unplug and conserve energy

Save on energy costs and reduce your environmental footprint by unplugging non-essential electronics before you leave. Double-check that lights, heaters, and appliances are turned off. It’s a small step that makes a big impact, both on your utility bills and the environment. 

  1. Tidy up common areas:

Whether you share your living space with roommates or have communal areas in your HudLets accommodation, take a few minutes to tidy up. Clear any communal spaces of personal items, wash dishes, and dispose of any lingering trash. A clean and organised space creates a positive environment for everyone, especially for those staying in Huddersfield for the holidays. 

  1. Double-check appliances:

Before you head out, make sure all appliances are turned off. This includes ovens, stovetops, and space heaters. Not only does it contribute to safety, but it also helps you return to a home that’s ready for your next culinary adventure without any surprises. 

  1. Set thermostats appropriately:

Save energy and ensure a comfortable return by setting your thermostat to an appropriate level. Avoid extremes that could strain the heating or cooling systems unnecessarily. This simple step helps maintain a pleasant environment while keeping energy consumption in check. 

  1. Lock up valuables:

While your HudLets accommodation is likely a safe haven, it’s always a good idea to lock away valuable items. Use lockboxes or secure drawers to store important documents, electronics, or sentimental items. It’s an extra layer of protection for your peace of mind. 

With these tips, leaving your HudLets accommodation for the holidays becomes a breeze. By taking a little time to secure, tidy, and conserve, you’ll return to your student haven with a fresh start and a clear mind. From all of us at HudLets, we wish you a joyful holiday season and a worry-free return to your cosy student abode. Safe travels
