Allocation of accommodation is completed in two waves. The first wave is completed at the end of July for the majority of undergraduate students who hold unconditional places at the University. The second wave takes place in mid-August, once the majority of students have had their places confirmed following the publication of exam results. Please note that you may have to wait 14 working days after results day to receive your offer.
In both waves, all students who have applied for accommodation and have unconditional places accepted at the University are processed by the allocations software, which allocates students in a random order to their preferred accommodation. As we have a number of accommodation sites, inevitably some are more popular than others. For each student, the allocation software will seek to find an available room which matches the preferences that students select on their application form. Where options are limited, the software will try to find the best possible match to the preferences.
The order of allocations is done randomly by an allocations software system to ensure fairness to all applicants.
If you are applying for 2019 please note that the benefits of an unconditional offer are purely academic, and unconditional offer holders will not receive any priority over any other offer holders in the allocation of accommodation.
