Please note that accommodation is limited (215 rooms). We give priority to new students starting a full-time course, and whose home address is furthest away from the campus. Some rooms may become available during the year and we will operate a waiting list for these.

If you’re not successful, or you choose not to go into halls, we can help you look for private accommodation.

For new students joining us in September 2021, we are guaranteeing accommodation for your first year - see our dedicated page for details.
