How to Apply

Find out how to apply for university accommodation.

Applications for September 2022 entry are now open. 

We do not assign rooms based on the date you apply, so there is no rush to complete your application. Just remember to submit your application by 31st July to be covered by our New Student Guarantee.

If you are a current student applying for accommodation for the remainder of the academic year 2021/22, please contact us

Step 1 - Register

Once you've received an offer to study with us, you can register your profile on the application portal using your UCAS number or university reference number. 

You'll need to create a password and supply us with some brief details including your email address. Please make sure to register with an email account you can access during the summer months. A school or agent's email is not recommended.

Step 2 - Start your application

Once you've received an email invitation to apply, log in using your 9-digit applicant number (we will have emailed this to you after registering). Select 'Create Application' and you're ready to begin.

Choose your application type 

Let us know if you're applying for a single room or coming with a partner or family. 

Notify us of any medical needs

If you need a specific room type or location because of a disability or medical reason, include this on your application. 

Select your sharing mix

Tell us if you prefer single-gender or mixed-gender accommodation. Also, if you'd prefer living in an alcohol-free area, also let us know. 

Step 3 - Pick your favourite accommodation 

If you're applying as a single student, you can choose three options. Each choice you make will be a mix of a room type (washbasin, en suite, studio) and residence. If your favourite accommodation offers multiple room types, you can apply for it more than once. 

Mature undergraduate students aged 25+ can choose from both undergraduate and postgraduate accommodation. 

Step 4 - Choose your backup options

In case none of your preferred accommodation options are available, we'll use this information to decide which alternative room to offer you. You'll need to let us know what's most important to you; whether it's low-cost accommodation, private bathroom (includes our managed partnerships, T&Cs can differ), living in university-owned accommodation or catered halls. 

Step 5 - Submit your application

Provide us with any additional information and submit your application. Easy! 

Don't worry if you change your mind later, you can still go back and edit your application up until 31st July. Find out What Happens Next?
