Accommodation for 2014-15

University accommodation has got so much to offer (all inclusive rents, convenient locations, varied contract lengths and a safe and secure environment) which has resulted in a large number of students applying to stay in university accommodation for their second and third years. Unfortunately for 2014/15 we currently have no availability at this stage.

If you decide to apply for accommodation at this time, your application will be held on our records in case the situation changes. However, we are unable to guarantee that any accommodation will become available and if it does, this is only likely to be the case nearer to the start of the academic year in September 2014.

In the meantime, there is plenty of alternative accommodation with a wide range of options available from purpose built accommodation to shared houses in the private sector.  You can access a full list via Studentpad which is updated regularly.

For 2014/15 returning students are able to apply for Birks Grange Village Studios on either 40 or 51 week contract lengths. Prices are detailed below:

Supported Applications

The University recognises that some students may have particular accommodation requirements – for example, relating to a disability or health issue – which may best be met through living in a University residence.  If you require a room in University accommodation for a welfare reason, this will not be automatically allocated to you, even if you are currently in residence. 

You will need to apply for accommodation by Friday 31 January 2014, and your application should be supported by the relevant Student Support service. Please contact us for more details or if you require assistance in making your application.
