We have a small number of on-campus rooms and studios for couples, and also work with the York Housing Association (YHA) to provide some one bedroom properties. 

Only one person in a couple needs to be a full time registered student at York to be eligible to apply.

Applications for couples accommodation for 2019/20 are now closed. If you're still in need of a room, you may want to look at private sector accommodation.

How we allocate

We allocate on a first-come-first-served basis, based on the priority (highest to lowest) below:

  1. Students with evidence of an additional requirement
  2. New students from outside the EU
  3. New students from outside the UK but within the EU
  4. New students from the UK
  5. Continuing students who have not previously lived in University couples accommodation
  6. Continuing students who have lived in University couples accommodation before

Although our University accommodation is only available for a one-year let length, you may be able to extend your YHA contract beyond the initial let length, subject to availability. If your course is longer than one year we may give you priority for YHA accommodation.

Private sector accommodation

As we can't guarantee accommodation for families and couples, you should also look into private sector accommodation around York.
