Students applying as a group must choose the same room type/location as their top preference and ensure they apply within 48 hours of the group leader

Frequently asked questions

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
