What’s happening? When will I hear?

Today we begin sending out offers of accommodation to those students who applied within our Accommodation Guarantee. Please remember our Accommodation Office is open between 8:30am – 6:00pm (Monday to Friday) this week to answer any queries you may have. Please telephone 0300 555 0444 or email us at:
Undergraduate students – applied within the guarantee?
If you applied between 9 April – 31 July and are covered by our Guarantee then offers will be sent out from today. These offers will be sent out in batches right up until Friday 24 August. Please note, we do not send all room offers out for a particular residence on the same day, they are staggered throughout the week in order to not overload our accommodation system.You will be notified by email once your offer is available. This is the email address which you entered when you activated your accommodation account. Please have a look at our ‘How to accept an offer of accommodation‘ video for a step by step guide on what to do once you receive your offer. If you are going to be away over the next couple of weeks then you might want to consider giving a trusted family member or friend your log-in details so that they can accept the offer on your behalf.
If you are allocated to one of our nominated residences, we will advise you by email and then the provider of the accommodation will contact you directly about the contractual arrangements.

Undergraduate students who applied from 1 August
If you are applying for accommodation from 1 August then we have provided a comprehensive list of ‘what to do’ in last week’s blog post. Please note that if we are able to provide you with accommodation, it is likely to be:

  • Off campus – standard – self-catered
  • On campus – standard twin shared – catered

As well as submitting an application for University accommodation, you may decide to arrange your own accommodation and if this is the case, we recommend that you look at our private housing options which include purpose-built accommodation, very similar to university accommodation. The residences with an asterisk (*) besides them still have availability.

International postgraduate students
If you are an international postgraduate student and you are applying for accommodation before 12:00pm on Friday 24 August – you should receive an update on your application by no later than 5:00pm on Friday 24 August.

Any international postgraduate students applying from Saturday 25 August – we would be able to update you from next week when you are likely to hear.

Induction and arrivals booking system currently closed
Students who have already confirmed their accommodation booking for 2018/19 and have received an email advising them to complete the online induction and book their accommodation arrival slot, please note that system is currently closed but will re-open over the Bank Holiday (26-27 August). We will update you on its availability via this blog and through our Facebook page.This also means that any students who are accepting offers this week will receive information about completing their eInduction and booking their arrival slot – this will be sent next week.
Tomorrow’s blog will be a Guest Blog from our Wellbeing Services Team providing information and assistance about any students with a health condition or disability.
