You will use this number to pay the Room Bond (which becomes a damage deposit) online and the room you chose in May/June is yours. Please be aware that the online room reservation system will be suspended from 1 August until after the A level results in August.
…holding a conditional offer

The system will take into account both your preference options and date of application.
