We will be sending offers throughout this week to those students who have applied within our Accommodation Guarantee. Please remember that if you applied by 31 July and your academic place has been confirmed, you will receive an offer by 5:00pm on Friday 25 August.
Off-campus or on-campus accommodation
We have been sending offers out for some students to our off campus residences and every year despite us trying to quash rumours, many still believe that all of our accommodation is located on campus. This is not the case at all. Only our catered accommodation is all located on campus and is within a 15 minute walk to the centre of the Streatham Campus (The Forum). 70% of our self-catered accommodation is located on campus and 30% is located off campus, with a maximum distance of up to 35 minutes walk. The approximate walking distances from our self-catered residences to the centre of the Streatham Campus (The Forum) range between 5-35 minutes.
In all of our residences, including our nominated residences, the Residence Life Team offer support to residents, whilst our Estate Patrol Team are available 24 hours a day; 7 days a week as a point of contact for students should an emergency occur.
What we guarantee
For students who applied within our Accommodation Guarantee and have their academic place confirmed, then offers are continuing to be sent throughout this week, in batches, until Friday. Those who applied within the guarantee will be offered a bed space within our residences. We are unable to guarantee that this will be one of your preferences or an on-campus room. You are able to track your application to see the state of your application. If it is still showing as ‘submitted’ then please rest assured that if you applied within the guarantee, you will receive an offer by Friday. More information on how we allocate rooms can be found in our room allocation procedure.

We would like to use this opportunity to remind you of the essential repairs which are due to take place at our Lafrowda and Birks Grange Village residences this year. Our website has been updated about these works recently, so please ensure that you take a look in order to be kept informed.
