Application process

Accommodation in a nutshell

If you're a new full-time student who has accepted an offer on a course – and you apply by 10 June – your place to stay is sorted (as long as you meet the conditions in our accommodation guarantee). More on that below.

Accessible accommodation

We have fully adapted rooms for students with additional needs.

Accommodation guarantee

We will guarantee you a place in University-approved accommodation if you’re applying to be a full-time student at UWE Bristol for the first time.

There are four criteria for this. You need to:

  • For UCAS applicants, accept our offer through UCAS and make us your first choice. For International and Postgraduate applicants, accept your offer through the welcome portal
  • Apply for your accommodation before 10 June 
  • Agree to take a single occupancy room for the full letting period
  • Accept our offer of accommodation and pay your deposit within five days of receiving it.

Please note that the guarantee is not open to returning students.
