New Student Guarantee

We guarantee accommodation to all first-year, undergraduate and postgraduate students where certain eligibility criteria is met.

New student guarantee

Coming to university is an exciting time but moving to an unfamiliar city can be a daunting experience. We aim to take some of the stress out of the process by offering our New Student Guarantee.

We can guarantee you accommodation so long as:

  • you are about to start your first year of an undergraduate or postgraduate taught course
  • you have applied as a single student
  • you have made us your 'firm' choice university and have applied for a full year's accommodation by 30 June 2024
  • if you are an undergraduate student, you hold an unconditional firm offer by 31 August 2024 
  • if you are a postgraduate taught student, you hold an unconditional firm offer by 30 June 2024 

The guarantee is an offer of a room in University-owned or managed partnership accommodation. We strive to match you with your chosen accommodation, but this isn't always possible due to the popularity of some residences. We appreciate your understanding that our guarantee is of a room, not one you have chosen.
