You will receive an email from us and you'll have approximately seven days (details will be in your email) to pay your deposit from the dates shown here. Please contact us if this causes you any problems at or call the Residence Life team on +44 1752 588644.

Still on the waiting list for a room for September 2014?

Existing bookings are being released daily as students defer or change their study options. We are also seeking new accommodation. Students on the priority list will be contacted personally to be offered these rooms as they become available.

Please be patient and don’t worry, we will find accommodation for you.

Many thanks
