We have living options across campus and the city, each supported by our college communities. There are plenty of ways to make York feel like home.

If you're a new student and secure a place through Clearing, we'll aim to make you an offer of accommodation owned, managed or approved by the University, subject to availability.

How to apply for accommodation

You can make accommodation arrangements as soon as you confirm your Clearing place. We allocate rooms based on application dates, so it’s best to apply as soon as you can. It can take up to 48 hours for our system to update after you receive your login details.

Our Accommodation team are on hand for support throughout the whole Clearing process. If you have any questions or concerns, get in touch at accommodation@york.ac.uk – we're here to help!
