Have you deferred your offer?
If you have deferred with an unconditional offer from Birmingham and have previously applied for accommodation, your initial application will no longer be valid for the 2016/2017 academic year. So you’ll need to re-submit your application.
If you apply for accommodation before the deadline, your accommodation will usually be
allocated during July & August 2016.
If you’re a late applicant or are outside the guarantee scheme we cannot guarantee you accommodation but we will do our best to assist you. Where we have vacancies we will offer these rooms and if we do not have accommodation within our own stock we will advise on suitable alternative options.
