Families and couples

The University Accommodation Services office will give you every possible assistance to find suitable accommodation, but as demand for this type of accommodation is sometimes greater than the number of properties available, the University cannot guarantee that suitable housing will always be found.

For more information please contact the accommodation office via email on or by phone on +44 114 222 4488 (option 2).

How to apply for accommodation

Theres two options:

1. Log in to MUSE and start your application for accommodation


2. Set up your MUSE account (if you are a new student and just accepted an academic course then wait for an email from the team which will have your login details)

Please be patient, as once the university has offered you a course and you have accepted that course - it can take up to 48 hours before you will receive your MUSE log in details. Once you have your MUSE login details you can apply for your accommodation online. Please bear in mind that if you are waiting to be released from another university back onto the UCAS system - this could incur further delays which are out of our control.
