Halls of residence
Is my son or daughter guaranteed a room in halls of residence?
We guarantee university-managed accommodation to all undergraduate applicants who choose the University of Plymouth as their first choice institution and apply for accommodation before the deadline. Please check our accommodation homepage which will be updated with full details of the guarantee.
How do they apply?
Applications are submitted 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 pay a £250.00 deposit within seven days.
Instalment one - this payment is for 13 weeks' rent and is due on 19 January 2019
Instalment two - this payment is for nine weeks' rent and is due on 27 April 2019
Information will be emailed to students once you have paid your deposit and signed the licence. You will also be able to join your hall Facebook groups to meet your new neighbours before you arrive.
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 a £250 deposit is required followed by four week's rent in advance. If the fours week's rent in advance is going to be problematic, please make contact with the Residence Life office. Please note that only the student intending to live in the room can sign the halls of residence licence agreement.
Can I discuss my son or daughter’s application or account with Residence Life?
During the application process, your son or daughter will have the opportunity to add third party permission contact details. We can only talk to those people listed as the third party contact in the accommodation application due to data protection. Please note this is not the same as listing someone as your emergency contact as the third party permissions will not apply to them.
- Students can withdraw third party permission at any time
- Anyone who calls wishing to discuss a student account will be required to answer security questions
After the application process has closed, we will need written permission from the student from an email address listed on their account for a person to be added as a third party contact.
