We are part of the Student Accommodation Code.
The Code protects students’ rights to safe, good quality accommodation.
In September 2012, we welcomed over 4,500 students from all over the world into the University residences and helped around 6,500 returning students, visitors and others find housing in the private rented sector beforehand. We will welcome 4,650 students into our growing portfolio of residences in September 2013.
We will be accepting housing applications from new guaranteed undergraduates and postgraduates hoping to join us from September 2013 from mid-March 2013. The closing date for completed housing applications is 1 August 2013 and you can find more information about our housing allocation process and guarantee in our FAQs, Housing Hand-Book (2MB, PDF) and residences web-pages. The link to our housing application will be emailed to you from mid-March.
If you are considering applying for a University managed bed-space from September 2013 as an undergraduate in your second, third or fourth year of study, or as a non-guaranteed housing postgraduate, we will open our waiting list at the end of August 2013 and will publish the application form and guidance on our web-pages. Any room we may be able to offer you is subject to availability and we recommend that you continue with your search for non-University managed housing.
