The University of Greenwich guarantees student accommodation to most new full-time students if you meet some simple conditions. Find out more.

The University of Greenwich offers a guarantee of accommodation to new students subject to the following conditions.

Accommodation guarantee conditions

  • You are attending the University of Greenwich for the first time (either as a first-year undergraduate or postgraduate, or as a direct entrant to another year)
  • Your accommodation application has been received before 20 August 2020 (although we expect to still have rooms available after this date) 
  • You are enrolling on a full-time programme of study, for which you have qualified and have accepted your offer of study
  • You start your studies in September and you are studying for the whole academic year (note: students studying for one semester can also live in halls of residence)
  • You are studying on one of the three main University of Greenwich campuses (Avery Hill, Greenwich or Medway)

Please note that students can choose to select their rooms from the date they apply if they wish and rooms will be available on a first come first served basis. 

Greenwich Campus-based students should note that rooms in halls near the Greenwich Campus tend to fill up first. If no rooms are available in one of these halls, rooms in the Student Village at Avery Hill are normally still available as this is the university's largest hall (over 1,200 rooms). More than two-thirds of the residents of the Student Village study at the Greenwich Campus and a free inter-campus bus runs between the two sites.

You will normally be offered accommodation in a university hall of residence but in the unlikely event that rooms within university halls are unavailable, the university will either find you alternative university-approved housing or secure a room for you in short-term accommodation until a room within a university hall becomes available.

I am studying at a partner college, can I apply for university accommodation?

The university is not usually able to extend the guarantee of accommodation to students enrolled at partner colleges unless an agreement is place with the partner college (currently in place with Bird College and Hadlow College). Students at our partner colleges are advised to contact the Accommodation Service directly if they are interested in living in one of the halls of residence. If you cannot be offered a place in halls of residence you will be advised of alternative options available to you.
