How it is conducted
At the posted time, students are asked to register at the registration counter. This is important as we need information on where to help you deliver the furniture you have chosen. During registration, you will also be issued special tags that help us identify furniture you have chosen. Once all of the students have registered, a balloting exercise will take place.
Please note that furniture will not be given away on a first-come-first-serve basis. Arriving earlier at the venue will not give you any better chances of 'winning' your furniture of choice. The balloting will ensure that all students will have a fair chance of choosing any piece of furniture they need.
The entrance to the giveaway area will not open until the event has started. No early birds, and No early browsing! Coming early will not increase your chances to get stuff. You MUST sign in to get your number for balloting.
Items will be given out on a random basis using numbers drawn. So, if you are early or late, it will make no difference. However, we will start on time. We will provide a 10 minute grace period in case some of you arrive late because of the bus service.
Delivery of furniture to your home will commence immediately after all the furniture have been spoken for. We ask that you keep the afternoon free to await delivery of your chosen furniture. We will help you deliver larger items in our vans/trucks to your apartment/house. We do ask that you come along with the driver. No furniture will be delivered if you are not present.
