Bookings for 2020/21 are open (limited availability)

Please note:  Due to high demand for continuing undergraduate accommodation we are releasing a small number of additional rooms on a first come first served basis excluding the conditions below.

Bookings for continuing undergraduate students wanting to live on campus for 2020/21 have been open since the beginning of December, as such, we are almost full.

As we have a very small number of rooms left available we have swapped from a book now system to a preference based system. You will be asked to list a selection of room types in order. We will then send out room offers where available, based on your preference list.

We will be prioritising overseas students who apply before the international student guarantee deadline of Friday 17 January 2020. All other students will be kept on a waiting list.

Students on the waiting list

Once we have assisted guarantee overseas students, we will then prioritise students with additional requirements.

Any remaining rooms will be allocated to students on the waiting list on a first come first served basis, bases on the date that the application was submitted.

Group applications

As room availability is now limited, we cannot gaurantee we will be able to facilitate group bookings. We will do our best to help you where possible, subject to availability.

If you want to apply as a group, you'll need to designate one member of your group as a leader.

  • The leader needs to make their application first, and select 'group application' when applying
  • When making the application the group leader will be given a group code
  • When applying after the group leader, other group members must select 'apply as part of a group' and enter the group code when prompted

Students applying as a group must choose the same room type/location as their top preference and ensure they apply as soon as possible after the group leader.

Students with additional requirements

If you have additional requirements and require accommodation please let us know as soon as possible. Unfortunately, we cannot at this stage gaurantee accommodation. However, given the provision of sufficient medical evience, we will prioritise students with additional requirements on our waiting list, after we have fulfilled our international student guarantee.

Studying abroad or going on a placement year?

You can still book a room and as long as you let us know by Friday 10 July 2020 that you’ve got a placement or will be studying abroad. If you inform us by this date, you won’t be charged a cancellation fee.

Frequently asked questions

How do I inform you about my additional requirements?

What you need to do

Please include information about any additional requirements, adaptations, adjustments or additional facilities you require in your online application.

Without this information, we may have difficulty meeting your accommodation requirements, so please let us know as soon as possible.


If you have previously applied with additional requirements
You do not have to submit evidence again unless we ask you to do so. However, you still need to let us know what your requirements are in your application form.

If you have not previously applied with additional requirements 
You will need to upload documentary evidence from an appropriate professional to the additional requirements section of your application. If you do not have evidence on hand right away, you should email it to accommodation@york.ac.uk with 'Additional requirements' in the title as soon as possible.

Please note: While we will do our best to meet all of your additional requirements, accommodation for continuing students is based on current availability. To give us the best chance of meeting your needs, we encourage you to apply early. 

What are my cleaning responsibilities?

  • You're responsible for looking after your bedroom and ensuite (if you have one) as well as making sure your kitchen and communal areas are tidy enough for our cleaning teams to do their job.
  • Our cleaning teams will help you to look after your accommodation by performing a weekly kitchen clean to help you keep on top of things. They'll also clean your shared bathroom areas.
  • You can let us know about any cleaning or maintenance problems by reporting them online and we'll do our best to resolve them swiftly.
