Whether you choose to live in one of the University's halls of residence or in a privately-rented home, Accommodation Services can provide information and advice to help you find a suitable place to live.
The University's halls of residence are available to students who have an offer for a place on a course at the University.
We encourage you to pick your top 5 halls when you apply, as that will give us a better indicator as to what your preferred choices are. We will try to give you one of your top 5, however, we can not guarantee you will be placed there. Please apply early to avoid disappointment - the sooner you apply the more likely you are to get one of these choices.
Due to an extremely high level of interest for Highline Building and Sketch House, we strongly encourage you to choose alternative halls to avoid disappointment. We also advise that you choose 5 different halls when selecting your preferences, to give you a better chance of being allocated one of your choices.
Please note that we prioritise applications from all international and disabled students, as well as any student under the age of 18. If you have special requirements you must notify us of your needs on your application for accommodation.
Be aware that foundation year students study on a different timetable to students on most other courses, however, students are still free to book a place in our halls.

Once you've received an offer
Once you have been offered a room we cannot change your offer.
If you change your mind because you would prefer to live in another hall, you will have to reject your offer and contact us to be put on a mailing list. We strongly advise against doing this as you are not guaranteed to receive a second offer given the high level of applications.
