Allocations policy

We are now accepting applications for April 2020. Room offers will commence on 3 March 2020. We are now accepting applications for July 2020 and September 2020. Room offers will commence on 18 May 2020.

Room offers are made in the order that they are received, with priority going to those students (new to the University) who have accepted their offer to study here.  Applicants with ‘unconditional firm’ offers will receive their room offers first.

Please make sure that you have read and understood our accommodation terms and conditions before you apply and accept a place in University accommodation.  You will be entering into a legally binding contract for which there is no opt-out clause.  Unless there are serious extenuating circumstances, you will be financially liable for the whole duration of your contract.

All new accommodation contracts are for one academic year.

The Security Bond

All students who stay in University owned accommodation must pay a £700 security bond.  This is refundable when you move out of the accommodation, minus any accommodation debt and/or accommodation charges.

Your Room Offer

Your room offer is valid for 10 days.  If you want us to hold the room for you then you must make a payment of either the security bond, the first terms rent, or both, before your room offer expires.

Collecting your Keys

Before you can collect your keys you must have paid the £700 security bond and the first terms rent. We would prefer you to make these payments by card via the online accommodation portal.

Useful information

  • All of our rooms are fully furnished.
  • Please bring you own bedding and towels – these are not provided by the University
  • There are kettles, microwaves and toasters in the kitchens but you will need to bring your own pots, pans and crockery.
