Apply for Accommodation

Room offers are made in the order that applications are received, with priority going to those students who are new to the University. If you have confirmed your place at Buckingham you should apply now.

Please make sure that you have read and understood our terms and conditions before you apply for and accept a place in University accommodation. Click here for our terms and conditions. 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 a minimum of 4 terms (3 terms if you are a Medical School student).

We do not ask for an accommodation deposit when you apply for accommodation initially.  In order to confirm your room booking you are required to pay for the first term within 10 days of being made your room offer (this may be before you receive your Student Loan.)

If you are joining us in January 2018 you may apply now.

  • Please select the ‘2018 Medical Intake’ option if you will be studying Medicine.
  • For all other courses please select the ‘2018 January Intake’ option.

Room offers will be made week commencing 6 November 2017.
