There are three possibilities of accommodation available: living at home, halls of residence and private accommodation. Discussing the pros and cons of each option with your son or daughter will help them to make the best choice for them.

Arrangements for booking accommodation will vary between institutions but most will begin the process in May after a student has chosen their Firm and Insurance choice.

Your son or daughter should check their emails regularly for correspondence from their university and make sure they follow all of the steps to secure their accommodation.

If you have any concerns regarding the process then please do not hesitate to contact the relevant university who will be happy to help.
