Guarantee deadlines for 2015/16

The University guarantees accommodation in University owned or partner accommodation to students who meet certain criteria.  Further information can be found on our Guarantee Schemes page.  The application deadlines are below.

Freshers Guarantee deadline

  • UK and EU students - 31 May 2015
  • International students - 31 July 2015 

Gap year students

If you’re taking a gap year with an unconditional offer from Birmingham and have previously applied for accommodation, your initial application will no longer be valid for the 2015/2016 academic year. So you’ll need to re-submit your application after December 1st 2014.


If you apply for accommodation before the deadline, your accommodation will usually be
allocated during July & August.

If you’re a late applicant or are outside the guarantee scheme we can’t 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.
