Problems with registration or submitting your application for accommodation?
If you're having trouble registering or submitting an application through the Online Accommodation System, the registration and application guide may help!
If you are made an offer of accommodation, you’ll need to make a prepayment of £300 before accepting. Don’t worry, this isn’t an additional cost, as the £300 will be deducted from your first instalment of rent. Please note that payments must be made via the accommodation system and not through ePay.

As the start of term approaches, many of our student support teams are receiving a very high volume of queries via phone and email, particularly the Student Services Centre team. We are working very hard to reply to queries as quickly as we can, but please be aware that there may be a delay in receiving a response. We are dealing with your requests on a first-come first-served basis, and will be in touch as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued patience. Our student intranet and Welcome Week website contain lots of information regarding start of term and might be helpful in answering some of your queries.
