You will be asked to sign a tenancy agreement with UAL with the exception of students who are resident at Chapter House, Emily Bowes Court, Furzedown Student Village, or Wigram House. Your personal data will be used to support your tenancy on the legal basis “necessary for the performance of a contract”.
