Summer Study Abroad students have the option to reserve a space in 1 of UAL's halls of residence. Although UAL Study Abroad and Accommodation endeavour to provide students with suitable UAL accommodation, space is limited and is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
It is advantageous for students to book their summer accommodation as soon as they receive their offer letter; however, students will only receive the discounted rate once they receive an unconditional offer from the central UAL Study Abroad team. For more details about the discounted rate, please refer to the conditional offer letter.
