Booking your accommodation

Once you've chosen your preferred halls of residence, you can apply for your room through the accommodation portal. Halls of residence applications are on a first-come, first-served basis; we don't ask for your first, second or third choice.
When allocating rooms, we endeavour to match you with people who have similar living habits. The application process includes some lifestyle questions to help us with the allocations – for example, whether you prefer to go to bed early or late. This helps us to place you with likeminded flatmates, however please be aware this is not an exact science.

Rooms in off-campus halls of residence are accredited under Accreditation Network UK (ANUK).
