How to apply as a Postgraduate student

You can apply online from the middle of April. Accommodation offers will be sent (subject to availability) from June.

If you are a postgraduate taught student starting your course in October, please follow the steps below.

Research students who are due to arrive in December, April and July, please email us for details of availability. 

Step 1 – Research

Browse our hall pages and have a look at the types of accommodation available to you. We will be asking you for your preferences so make sure you have an idea of what you are looking for but don't limit yourself to one choice. All our halls offer a great environment to study and have a strong community spirit.

Step 2 – Registration

Follow the links to 'Accommodation Login' and follow the instructions. Don’t forget to make a note of your username and password.

You will be taken through the short registration process and when this is complete you will receive a confirmation email.  The Student Accommodation Centre will then notify you when you are eligible to process to the application stage. 

Step 3 – Application

Once you have a firm offer for your course, you can register your accommodation preferences for University accommodation online

You can select three accommodation preferences based on an area of the campus and room type. Once you have completed your preference request you will be sent an email summarising your preferences.

Our team will use your preferences as a guide when allocating accommodation. Please note that depending on availability we are not able to guarantee that you will be offered your preferred room type. The system will take into account both your preference options and date of application.

Subject to availability, the accommodation team will allocate you a room. You will be sent an email confirming your accommodation offer and how to accept this online.  You will receive your offer via the email address you specified on your University application.

Step 4 – Accommodation Contract

You will be required to enter your Login Username and Password to accept the contract online.  You will be entering into a legally binding agreement with the University, your landlord. 

Please make sure you:

  • Confirm your room by accepting our Terms & Conditions and online contract
  • Pay your Room Bond once you have been issued with your University Student ID number (for example B******). You will be sent a confirmation email to acknowledge your successful transaction.
  • Complete the online induction and book your arrival slot

Please contact the Student Accommodation Centre if you experience problems applying for your accommodation.
