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 we can’t guarantee you accommodation but we will do our best to assist you.
