Returning undergraduates

If you’re going into your second, third or fourth year of study, you can still apply for a range of University accommodation. Our shorter-term contract options offer flexibility if you’re going to be doing a semester abroad and don’t need accommodation for the full year. Please note that new undergraduate students are given priority when University accommodation is allocated.

Students who will be studying abroad can see their accommodation options by reading the contract length information below.

Application process

As a current student, you can apply for accommodation from the dates specified below. Please be aware that applications made in the Student Portal before these dates will be rejected.
