Our guarantee

We guarantee all first year Home, EU and International undergraduate students and postgraduate International students (in their first year of study) accommodation in university owned, managed or approved accommodation providing applications are submitted by a set deadline (which will be confirmed in spring 2018).

Whilst we try to allocate students their preferred choice of accommodation we cannot guarantee that we will be able to offer all students their first choice and therefore recommend that all available options are put in order of priority.
