With only four days to go until applications for accommodation go live on Monday 9 April from 10:00am we felt it best to further update you on some items prior to you applying:
*Applications for 2018/19 will open from 10:00am on Monday 9 April. This means that the ‘new’ application will not show before this time and you can only apply after 10:00am. If you apply before this time, you will have applied incorrectly, your application will be rejected and you will need to re-apply.*

Essential Building Works 2018/19
We provided a great deal of information in our ‘Guest blog post‘ on 27 March about the essential repairs and improvement taking place at our Lafrowda, Birks Grange Village and Duryard residences during the 2018/19 academic year. In addition to this blog post, we have recently received some further updates about the scheduled works and also information from current students (video) about what it’s been like living in an affected block. Please see these below:

Development Works 2018/19
Please be aware that development works for an extension of our student accommodation provision are scheduled to commence from August 2018 and will take place in close proximity to a number of blocks in the Lafrowda and St.German’s areas throughout 2018/19. The works will be planned carefully to ensure the impact is as minimal as possible for residents in neighbouring accommodation. For more information on the Spreytonway development, please visit the Residential Strategy webpages.
