Guaranteed applicant timeline
If you are applying for accommodation in the first round of applications as a guaranteed applicant, the key dates you need to know for each step of your application cycle can be found here.
Late April / early May - register to apply
We will email students to invite you to register your details on our application system and set up your account and password. This means when applications open you can log straight in to the system and get started.
11 May - applications open
Applications will open from 10am on Tuesday 11 May 2021. You can apply for accommodation after you firmly accept your offer of study (you will not be able to access the form before that), but there is no rush - accommodation is NOT allocated on a first come first served basis. When you complete your application you'll be able to list up to nine preferences of the type of room you'd like, the residence and the maximum rent. You will need to let us know about any health issues you have that affect your accommodation choice.
30 June - first round applications close
Applications for the first round close on Wednesday 30 June 2021. If you have not completed your application by midnight on this date, you will no longer be a guaranteed applicant.
13 July - unconditional applicant offers made
Accommodation offers made to students whose place of study at Bristol was unconditional when they applied for accommodation (which means your study offer is not dependent on exam results). This includes applicants who deferred studies from a previous year.
15 July - unconditional offer deadline
If you were made an offer of accommodation on 13 July and have not accepted the offer by this date, your accommodation offer will be withdrawn and you will no longer be a guaranteed applicant.
10 August - A Level results day
Once your place at the University is confirmed, following A Level results day, our system assigns you a room, using your preferences.
17 August - accommodation offers made
You will receive an email asking you to log in to the application system where you will be able to view the details of your offer. You will need to formally accept it online to confirm your room.
19 August - offer acceptance deadline
If you have not accepted your offer by this date, your accommodation offer will be withdrawn and the room made available to one of our non-guaranteed applicants.
18-19 September - arrivals weekend
You'll receive exact details of the arrival day for your residence, plus how to book a time slot, in your online induction.
