Bookings for 2020/21 are now open

Bookings for continuing undergraduate students wanting to live on campus for 2020/21 are now open.

Unlike first year, continuing student accommodation uses a 'book now' system, meaning the room type you book will be the one you get. Rooms are subject to availability. The rooms that show on the booking system represent the current available room stock. If a room is not on the list it is not currently available.

  • Make sure you apply for the correct year (2020/21)
  • Make sure you fully complete your application including all confirmation steps
  • You will receive an email when you have successfully completed your application

Applying as a group?

Group applications

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 make bookings for rooms in the same college and of the same room type.

International student guarantee

If you pay oversees tuition fees, we can guarantee you a room if you book continuing student accommodation by Friday 17 January 2020.

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.

Students with additional requirements

If you have additional requirements and require accommodation other than what would be solved by booking an ensuite bedroom, please let us know as soon as possible. Accommodation options available are dependant on room stock, so while we cannot guarantee any exact room or room type, the earlier you let us know, the best chance we'll have of being able to help you.

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.

Will my college change?

  • If you accept a room in a different college, your college membership will change when you move into your new college next year.

  • If you wish to represent your college as a member of the Students' Association next year, you must be a member of the college.

  • You won’t be able to keep your old college membership or represent your old college if you move to a different college.
