Accommodation offers are continuing to be sent this week to those students who applied within our Accommodation Guarantee (10 April – 31 July 2017). These offers are being sent in batches throughout the week and all students who fall within this category should receive an offer of accommodation by email by the end of the day on Friday 25 August if the University has confirmed your academic place.
Please see below for further information on what is required to secure your room booking for 2017/18:
Offered a room at Clifton Place, Northfield, Northernhay House, Point Exe or The Printworks?
Please remember that if you are offered accommodation at one of the above listed nominated residences, you will sign a contract and pay any deposit* due to the company operating these residences. Please read the information sent to you from our partners to make sure you understand their requirements in order to accept your accommodation. Once you receive the email notifying you of this, you do not need to do anything except wait for them to contact you.
You will also arrange your arrival time with the residence teams but this will either be for Saturday 16 or Sunday 17 September if you plan to arrive over Welcome weekend.
Offered a room in other University residences?
Accepting an Accommodation Offer
Offers which are being sent out will have either a 3-5 day expiry date. The expiry date is the date in which students are required to accept the accommodation offer by and pay the £300.00 deposit*. Please view our ‘How to accept an accommodation offer’ video for information on what you need to do.
Paying the £300.00 accommodation deposit
In order to see the different methods of payment we accept in order to pay your accommodation deposit, please view the ‘How to Pay‘ pages on our website. Please note that it can take up to 48 hours (or two working days) for a deposit to be processed. Your offer will not expire as long as you have accepted the contract. If you have not received a confirmation email after three working days, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please remember that due to the deposit, £150 will need to be deducted from your second and third term fee amount. This can be seen in your accommodation account and the payment dates are now available on our Student Finance webpage.
Arrival times and contract start dates
Arrivals Weekend will take place on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September 2017. Students are able to arrive on Friday 15 September if they have accepted an offer in Lafrowda, Rowe House, St German’s or Birks Grange Village self-catered accommodation. Residence Life Team welcome activities will be available from this date and Freshers’ events through the Students’ Guild.
Please note that we do accept arrivals across these dates even though all accommodation contracts start on Sunday 17 September. Students will be able to move in to their accommodation on their arrival date and no extra charge will be incurred.
You will be able to book your arrival slot once you receive an email from us. This check-in system is closed this week and we will update you on this blog once it has re-opened.
*Deposit prices may vary if you are allocated to one of our nominated residences and you will need to contact the residence directly if you have any queries about this.
