All University accommodation offers are based on the date of your application, with some students applying as early as December in the previous academic year. Inevitably, some accommodation is more popular than others which means we can’t always guarantee you’ll get your first choice.

Applications received after the deadline
If you miss the deadline, you’re still welcome to apply for accommodation but unfortunately we won’t be able to guarantee you a place. All applications are treated on a first-come, first-served basis.
We can't automatically guarantee postgraduate students a place in University accommodation, but you’re very welcome to apply and we’ll do our best to help you.
