All accommodation correspondence will be sent to the email address you give when you apply via the online booking system.
Generally, you will not receive any information regarding accommodation via the post, but you must inform the Accommodation Office AND your Admissions Secretary immediately if you change your home address, just in case.
You should notify the Accommodation Office if you are away on holiday, particularly during late August and September via firstname.lastname@example.org
Your accommodation offer will be sent out once an application form has been received and your study place at the University has been confirmed (when your offer converts from Conditional Firm to Unconditional Firm).
Please be aware that single sex accommodation is not guaranteed. The university reserves the right to infill any vacant room in a single sex flat which may mean a change to mixed sex accommodation.
If for any reason, we have to send the offer of accommodation by post, please ensure that there is someone available at the home address you provide on your application form who can respond immediately. Due to a great demand for accommodation, rooms are re-offered to another student if a deposit and acceptance is not received by the date stipulated in the offer letter (unless we have been notified of a delay).
If you decline the accommodation offer we make we cannot guarantee to offer you another room, but we do advise that you contact us.

If you have a condition/special need, which you wish to be taken into consideration when applying, you are advised to write to the Accommodation Officer with a supporting medical certificate. All information will be treated confidentially. Medical notes or religious/cultural needs do not guarantee your first choice accommodation.
If you are allocated a room in university accommodation, you will be required to bring your accommodation offer letter and some I.D (such as your passport) with you when you arrive to collect your keys/swipe card.
