With all of our accommodation on or very near to campus, you'll be living right at the heart of the action.
If you are not covered by our guarantee and we are able to send you a booking, you will be asked to accept a room offer by 1pm the following day. Please check your emails regularly.
Whether we're your firm or insurance choice, you're guaranteed an offer of a room in accommodation owned, managed or approved by the University if you apply for accommodation by our deadline date, details of which will be posted on our website at the start of next year.
If you pay overseas tuition fees, we can guarantee you a room for each year of your course if you apply for the full letting period by the deadline date announced in the autumn each year.
You'll be a member of one of our eight undergraduate colleges throughout your time here. Our colleges are more than just halls of residence. As well as social, study and catering facilities, they also offer:
- Support and guidance through a dedicated team of tutors and staff
- Activities and events that bring together students, staff and alumni
- Opportunities to meet new people and try new experiences
Although some departments are located within college buildings, you don't need to apply for a particular college based on your course. Our campus location means that all our colleges are a short walk to our departments and teaching buildings.
Families and couples
Most of our rooms are for individual applicants, but if you wish to live with your partner and/or children, you can apply for our studio flats or houses. These aren't guaranteed, but we will try our best to help you.
Nursing and Midwifery students
As your course will involve work placements and shift working, you'll be housed in a self-catered flat with other Nursing and Midwifery students in one of three colleges (Alcuin, Derwent and Halifax).
Current International Pathway College (IPC) students
If you're currently studying with us as an IPC student, we'll contact you about how to apply for accommodation.
Pre-sessional students (CELT and Economics Summer School)
If you're attending a pre-sessional course in the summer you do not need to apply for summer accommodation. You'll automatically receive a room booking for the summer period when you have received an unconditional, firm offer of a course place.
Hull York Medical School (HYMS) students
For your first two years at Hull York Medical School (HYMS) you'll be based at either the Hull or York campus.
If your application to HYMS is successful, you'll receive details of your designated campus with your programme offer, and will be sent information on how to apply for accommodation.
Beyond your first year
If you love living in your college, you can apply to live on campus for each year that you're here. You can apply individually or with your friends, and benefit from hassle-free payment with no bills or hidden costs to worry about.
We'll guide you through what happens next from exploring rooms and prices to applying.
