Non-guaranteed undergraduate applicants

Students who are joining the University through clearing or as insurance students or have missed the guarantee deadline for any other reason are advised to apply as soon as they have firmly accepted their place here. We cannot guarantee you accommodation but will will do everything we can to make you an offer. In 2017, of the 290 non-guaranteed applicants who applied for accommodation, 190 students were offered a place in University-allocated accommodation. We expect the picture to be very similar this year, so at the same time as applying for University accommodation you should start exploring your other options, please visit our private sector accommodation pages for more information and advice.

If you would like to live in University-allocated accommodation 

We regret that we are very unlikely to be able to offer a space to everyone who wants one.

If we are not able to offer you accommodation

We will send out offers from early September. Please keep an eye on your inbox and make sure we have your correct email as deadlines will be tight so that we can offer as many people as possible. If you do not want your offer please reject it online, so we can offer it to someone else. If you have not received an offer by 5 pm on September 4 you should start looking for private rented accommodation straightaway.

If you would prefer to live in private rented accommodation

The Accommodation Office can offer help with you search for private accommodation. There is lots of information about where to look and how to choose a property on our private rented pages. Students who have spaces in their flats or houses advertise rooms on the Bulletin Board.

House Search Event

If we are not able to offer all non-guaranteed applicants a place in University-allocated accommodation we run a House Search Event to help you find accommodation in the private sector. Details of the House Search Event, including how to book, will be emailed to any students we are not able to make an offer of accommodation to. 

Looking for accommodation

Student accommodation is available in the private rental sector. We provide advice on finding somewhere to live and what to look out for when renting.
