Accommodation and colleges

Accommodation at York is centred around our colleges. Each has its own welcoming and supportive community.

You're guaranteed a room in single-occupancy accommodation that is owned, managed or approved by the University during your first year provided that you complete the following steps by 9 June 2022:

  • accept York as your firm choice
  • submit your accommodation application and pay an advance payment of £200 to secure your room

You can choose from a variety of rooms and options to suit you and your budget.

I stayed in Alcuin College for two years. It was nice to have a peaceful place to come home to on a night, and I felt safe knowing that the college team, security or maintenance could help me out if I needed it.
