UK and EU students attending the University in January can apply for accommodation via our university accommodation form. Please note we do have very limited availability at this stage, however we will always try and accommodate where possible.

Things to remember:

  • When you receive your accommodation pack, it is vital that you return the relevant documentation and make the deposit and pre-payment within 14 days. Failure to do so will result in your accommodation being cancelled unless contact has been made with the accommodation officer prior to the expiry of the 14-day period.
  • If you have chosen to rent privately, you are entitled to Council Tax Exemption. Please visit the Student Services reception on the 7th floor of our Summer Row campus with your student ID card to collect your exemption certificate. We can print this while you wait.
