Postgraduate accommodation

The majority of our postgraduate accommodation is in Wentworth, our postgraduate-only college. Postgraduates can choose between self-catered single rooms and studio flats, conveniently located on our compact campus and close to university facilities.

You can make accommodation arrangements as soon as your place is confirmed at York. If you've accepted your place, please allow up to 48 hours after receiving your login details to be able to apply for accommodation.

How to apply

Applications for 2022-23 are open

Postgraduate international students (either on taught or research programmes) who have accepted an offer to study at York can apply for accommodation.

The priority deadline for new, full-time international fee postgraduate students was 9 June 2022. Students can still apply from this date and we'll aim to find you a room that is owned, managed or approved by the University, subject to availability.

Location

Our on-campus accommodation is close to University buildings and facilities. With just a short walk to the library, cafes, study and social spaces, you'll have university life on your doorstep - helping you to make the most of your time here.

Most postgraduates who live on campus are located in Wentworth College and if you’re not, you’ll still be a member of whichever college you live in and housed with other postgraduates too. 

Postgraduate accommodation is also available through our partner accommodation providers. These modern developments, Student Roost and Student Castle, are only a short distance from campus and offer contemporary, safe and comfortable accommodation. 

All postgraduates, wherever you live, will also have access to the postgraduate only common room in Wentworth college.


Bathroom type

In Shared accommodation, you'll have a wash basin in your room and share other bathroom facilities with your flat.

All shared bathrooms are individually lockable and cleaned Monday to Friday by our cleaning team. Toilet roll is provided for you.

In Ensuite accommodation, you'll have your own toilet, wash basin and shower in your room. 

You’ll be responsible for keeping your ensuite clean, but our cleaners will perform a deep clean, usually once a term. Toilet roll is not included, so you'll need to buy your own.
