Accommodation guarantee

As at January 2020 we are pleased to guarantee an offer of University-allocated accommodation for the first year of study to all UK, EU and International undergraduates who apply by 30 June 2020, provided that they:

  • have firmly accepted an offer of study at Bristol (this means you need to put Bristol as your first choice to be guaranteed accommodation),  
  • are coming to study at Bristol for the first time (this means you are not a returner or have not suspended your studies previously),
  • are unaccompanied (this means you are coming without dependent family members, spouses or partners).

The guarantee does not apply to students who:

  • miss the application deadline,
  • have not firmly accepted their offer of study by 30 June 2020,
  • have previously studied at the University of Bristol
  • are Erasmus students.

Please note that in order to fulfil our guarantee we may make you an offer for a room that is not in one of our advertised residences or offer you temporary accommodation or a place in a room shared with another student for a short time.

Important information for prospective students

The Accommodation Guarantee will be withdrawn if any applicant has not met the terms of their original offer of study by 31 August 2020. 

The guarantee deadline for international students is usually 30 June but there are a very few exceptions to that. If you think you are an exception please contact the International Office and they will let us know whether we need to extend your guarantee deadline.
