How to apply

Find out how to apply for accommodation, whether you are an existing student or planning to join the university in future.

You can apply for accommodation if you're currently younger than 18, as long as you'll be turning 18 during your first academic year. If you do not turn 18 during your first year of study, you can contact Accommodation Services and we'll give you guidance on other housing options.

Your contract and insurance

When you receive an offer of a room in a university hall of residence, you need to pay a deposit to secure the room. You also sign an Accommodation Licence Agreement for the period of your stay.

More about deposits and your licence.

We work with Endsleigh to provide some cover for the contents inside your room. You don't need to activate the cover, but it's important to check the terms and work out whether it is sufficient for your needs.
