What Happens Next?

Find out when you will hear from us and how we'll process your application.

Processing your application

After the application deadline has closed (31 July), we will start processing applications and randomise the order in which they are received. This means that we can allocate rooms in a way that is as fair as possible to all students that have met the conditions of the New Student Guarantee.

We will make every effort to assign you accommodation according to your choices, but in some instances we many need to offer you a suitable alternative. Don’t worry, you’ll have a great experience wherever you live.

When assigning accommodation, we aim to have a balanced mix of students in each flat. We don't knowingly put together students on the same courses; you'll meet your course mates soon enough! Wherever possible, mature students are placed together with students of a similar age.

Students with medical needs, single-gender and alcohol-free preferences

If you declared a medical need or a disability on your accommodation application, we'll take this into consideration when assigning you a room. Students who provided us with relevant medical evidence will be allocated accommodation first, to ensure we can find the most suitable room for their specific needs. Please make sure you've given us your medical evidence as far as possible in advance.

If you applied for single-gender accommodation or an alcohol-free area, we'll do our best to honour your wishes but cannot guarantee it if these room types have already been filled. If we need to offer you a room in mixed-gender accommodation instead, we'll let you know on your offer.
