After you have applied

Timelines and next steps for after you have applied for your student accommodation.

Your room allocation

We can’t guarantee that you’ll get your preferred choice – we allocate rooms in batches based on date order. If you want to live in a particular place, apply early to give yourself the best chance.

Rooms are allocated based on your chosen room type.

We’ll do our best to organise accommodation close to your campus but, in some cases, you may need to travel to get to where you’re studying.

Accepting and securing an offer

Once we send you your accommodation offer, you’ll have five days to accept it and secure your room with an advance rent payment of £400.


We’ll email you an offer of accommodation from July 2024 onwards. We will endeavour to process your application as soon as possible but please bear with us during this busy time.

Please check your email, including junk mail, regularly for any updates from us.  This will provide you with information on any offers of accommodation as well as further information regarding next steps.

The acceptance of this offer and advanced rent payment will be required within five days to secure your room. 

Please note that you will only receive one offer from us, and it may not match any of your requirements.

Moving in

During August, we’ll email you useful moving in information and details of what to do next.

Contract starts

You can move into your accommodation from mid-late September – check your offer for the exact date. We’ll send you information about collecting your key before your contract starts.

Didn't get the results you wanted?

Not everyone gets the results they want. If yours aren’t what you expected, the best thing to do is contact Admissions. One of our advisers can talk you through your options.

No longer need accommodation?

If you accept an offer of accommodation and then no longer need it, just make sure you contact the accommodation team by the end of August. We’ll then have enough time to allocate your room to someone else, and we can refund your advanced rent payment.
