With all of our accommodation on or very near to campus, you'll be living right at the heart of the action.

If you're a new student undergraduate joining us in September 2016, you will be able to apply for accommodation from Monday 9 May.

Our guarantee

Whether we're your firm or insurance choice, you're guaranteed a room in accommodation owned, managed or approved by the University if you apply for accommodation by Sunday 31 July 2016 and your offer becomes unconditional by Friday 26 August 2016 (12 noon BST).

Our guarantee applies to all new, full-time, first-year undergraduate students applying for a single room for the full academic year.

If you pay overseas tuition fees, we can guarantee you a room for each year of your course if you apply for the full letting period by the deadline date announced in the autumn each year.

You will be a member of one of our eight undergraduate colleges throughout your time here. Our colleges are much more than just halls of residence. As well as social, study and catering facilities, they also offer:

  • Support and guidance through a dedicated team of tutors and staff
  • Activities and events that bring together students, staff and alumni
  • Opportunities to meet new people and try new experiences

Although some departments are located within college buildings, you don't need to apply for a particular college based on your course. Our campus location means that all our colleges are a short walk to our departments and teaching buildings.

Families and couples

Most of our rooms are for individual applicants, but if you wish to live with your partner and/or children, you can apply for our studio flats or houses. These aren't guaranteed, but we will try our best to help you.

Pre-sessional students (CELT and Economics Summer School)

If you are attending a pre-sessional course in the summer you do not need to apply for summer accommodation. You will automatically receive a room booking for the summer period when you have received an unconditional, firm offer of a course place.

Nursing and Midwifery students

As your course will involve work placements and shift working, you'll be housed in a self-catered flat with other Nursing and Midwifery students in one of five colleges (currently Alcuin, Constantine, Derwent, Halifax or James).

Hull York Medical School (HYMS) students

Although you won't yet have been allocated to a university, you should apply for University of York accommodation now. We'll contact you with a room offer if you're allocated to York.

Beyond your first year

If you love living in your college, you can apply to live on campus for each year that you're here. You can apply individually or with your friends, and benefit from hassle-free payment with no bills or hidden costs to worry about.
