 How to Apply

We start taking applications in April for September entry of that year and in late October for January starts.  We sometimes have vacancies throughout the year so it's worth getting in touch if you need somewhere to live.​​​​​

Current Students

We will not be taking applications from returning students this year. If you want to go on our waiting list please email and we will contact you if we have any vacancies after our guarantee date in late August. We would advise that you look in the private sector for accommodation as we can't guarantee to have a space for you.

New Students

If you are new to the University and would like to live in student accommodation, have a look at our websit​e​ for all the eligibility criteria and application processes.  Applications are currently being taken for our September intake.  You can apply online as soon as you have an unconditional offer and are staying with us for the first time, for the full year and don't have an EH postcode.  If you have a conditional offer, you'll need to wait for your exam results to be able to apply. Our guarantee date is noon on 21 August, so there will still be time to apply after the results come out and be guaranteed an offer of accommodation.
For students entering through clearing from England, Wales or Northern Ireland, we have reserved additional accommodation through the Student Housing Company. This has allowed us to extend the deadline to apply for this accommodation to noon on Thursday 25 August.
