About postgraduate accommodation

Prospective postgraduate students are able to apply for University accommodation once they have accepted their offer to study and paid the required pre-payment fee.

The online accommodation application form is open from 1 March onwards. University accommodation is a popular choice, and it is not guaranteed, so you are encouraged to apply as early as possible to secure a place.

If you require accommodation for your family, you may find the accommodation for couples and families page useful. If you are a visiting postgraduate, find out more information about suitable accommodation on the visiting postgraduates page.
