The University appreciates that moving away from home can be a daunting prospect and therefore provides a priority for all students in their first year of study for accommodation, as long as applications are received by the advertised date. Priority extends to one offer of accommodation.
All first year students, from any location, will normally be allocated a single study bedroom in a University residence, although in times of high demand students may be required to share a twin room.
Applications should be made online via the university portal and full instructions will be sent from the student recruitment and admissions team once your place to study is unconditional firm.
Newly Released rooms for session 2013/14:
|Start Date||End Date|
|38 weeks||7th September 2013||31st May 2014|
|39 weeks||31st August 2013||31st May 2014|
These dates indicate your contract period, so please ensure you arrange your travel plans accordingly.
All accommodation for new undergraduates is offered on a 38/39 week let basis for session 2013/14, meaning that students can continue to occupy their rooms over the Christmas vacation period.
If specified accommodation is full, assistance will be given in securing alternative accommodation.
On-campus Halls of Residence are occupied predominantly by students in their first year of study and therefore mature students may wish to contact residential services for alternative options.
First Year students are encouraged to become involved in the Halls Social Committees. These committees are responsible, with the Accommodation Liaison Students, for organising social events for the residents of the Halls. Involvement is extremely fulfilling, and although the work never exceeds a few hours a week, you can gain invaluable experience in representing students, team working and organising events.
