  • Undergraduate students that did not hold an offer of accommodation or did not apply before 29 July 2022 will be able to apply after 18 August 2022.  When applications do open you will be able to choose a preference of room type and locations and rooms will be allocated according to preference and availability by the accommodation team.  Once allocated you will be sent an offer of accommodation when accepting this offer you will need to pay a £150 deposit and set up a payment plan, which is the means by which you will pay the rent in 2022-23.
