Moving to another country can be a daunting prospect, but with all of our accommodation located on or very near to our compact and safe campus, you’ll soon feel at home in York.

Our accommodation guarantee

If you're paying overseas tuition fees, and your course starts in September 2020, you're guaranteed an offer of University accommodation owned, managed or approved by the University for each year of your course if you meet our guarantee criteria and apply by our deadline dates.

If your course begins in January 2021 please submit an application now and our team will contact you in September to help assist you with accommodation on or off of campus.

Let lengths

Our 40-week undergraduate let length covers the full academic year from September until July - including all vacations.

51-week lets are also available to undergraduate and postgraduate students and include accommodation over the summer vacation - which is ideal if you’re planning to stay in the UK between academic years.

Families and couples

We can offer some accommodation to students who want to bring their families or partners to York. As you'll be paying overseas tuition fees you'll be given higher priority in our allocation policy than UK or EU students.
