Accommodation for 2015-16
The Students' Guild are holding a Housing Fair on Tuesday 13 January 2015 at The Great Hall so that you can understand all the options available to you. This event provides you with the opportunity to meet with landlords and private providers and to see their property portfolio which will range from purpose built accommodation with private providers to shared houses and flats.
The University is currently assessing the availability of accommodation for returning students (i.e. not Year 1 students). We will provide a full price list and open applications for our selected portfolio of residences from the Housing Event date on the 13 January 2015. Applications from returning students are processed in a date order of receipt. Please note that in previous years the number of applications received exceeded places available and if this is the case for 2015-16 we will operate a waiting list once we are full.
In preparation for January, think about who you want to live with, where you want to live, and what your budget is. Thinking about these things now will help you to get the most out of the Housing Fair.
For more information on the Housing Fair; details of our 'Don't Rush' campaign and updates, please see our accommodation blog.
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 when the applications open in January, 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.
