Halls of Residence
Is my child guaranteed a room in halls of residence?
We guarantee a place in halls – either University-managed or from accredited private providers – to all undergraduate first-year students who make Plymouth their firm first choice and apply before the deadline the 18th June 2021.
How do they apply?
Applicants can apply for University-managed accommodation once they have received an offer and make the University of Plymouth their first firm choice on ucas. Applicants will then receive an email from us at Residence Life inviting them to begin their application for accommodation on the Accommodation Portal.
Students who are studying at the University of Plymouth for semester two can make an application on our Accommodation Portal. Room offers will be sent to students in December and will be required to sign a licence agreement and two weeks advance rent within 7 days of receiving their offer.
Detailed information regarding arrivals will be emailed to applicants around the end of August once the licence agreement has been signed. To find out more about how arrivals run here at the University of Plymouth please see our dedicated arrivals page.
When will they find out if they have been given a room in halls and where?
Room offers will be released from the end of June onwards. To secure the room two weeks advance rent is required within seven days of receiving the offer and licence agreement.
How do we find out moving day instructions for September 2021?
Prior to moving in, information will be provided on the university website. This will include route maps, parking and hotel information. Specific moving time slots will be emailed to them.
