If you come to York through Clearing or Adjustment, we'll help you find your accommodation. Wherever you live, either on or near to campus, you'll join one of our friendly undergraduate colleges.

Our accommodation guarantee

No matter how you begin your student journey in September - whether that's online or on campus - we'll be here to support you and welcome you warmly into our community. In the meantime we are continuing to follow UK government social distancing guidelines and encourage you to apply for your accommodation as usual.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact our accommodation team on accommodation@york.ac.uk - they'll be happy to help.

If you accept your course offer through UCAS Track before Sunday 25 July and apply for accommodation by Tuesday 27 July, you'll be eligible for our accommodation guarantee. We allocate based on the date of your application, so it's important to get this sorted as soon as you can.

If you accept your course offer through UCAS Track between Sunday 25 July and Sunday 1 August, you can apply for accommodation up to 4pm on Tuesday 3 August.

Although our current accommodation guarantee ends on Tuesday 27 July, we expect to have a guarantee for early Clearing students. You should apply as soon as possible as we take application dates into account.

Our application system is closed while A level results are being processed from Tuesday 3 to Tuesday 10 August.

We will re-open at 8.30am on A level results day on Tuesday 10 August. If you have accepted a course offer during this period, you will be able to apply from this time.

We expect to be able to offer an accommodation guarantee to our Clearing applicants. Details of this clearing guarantee will be on our website before A level results are published on Tuesday 10 August.

More than a place to live

York is one of a handful of UK universities with a college system. As well as a place to live, your college will provide you with a network of support throughout your first year and a calendar of events and activities. You’ll meet people of all ages, nationalities and disciplines and most likely make friends for life.
