You will need the following to complete the application form:

  • your Student ID number for your application. This will have been supplied to you by your faculty when you were made your offer of study
  • an email address that you have access to. Email addresses that are likely to expire or terminated, for example school or college email addresses, are not suitable
  • your current personal details, including a current address
  • the dates that you wish to apply for (if you are a pre-sessional or visiting student, or if you wish to extend your halls contract, you may need to apply for the current academic year)

Please ensure that you read the Terms & Conditions for applying for halls before submitting your application.

If you are applying or accepting an offer on behalf of someone else

If you wish to apply on the behalf of a student, or accept an offer on their behalf, we wish need written confirmation of their permission for you to do this from the student. They must email this consent to and include the contact details (name and email address) of their delegate.

Current students

Continuing students who want to apply to stay in halls for the next academic year will need their login ID and password that you used when you registered for the previous year. If you have not previously lived in halls you will need to register.

Step 3: Check your application status

Once you've submitted the form you will get an email from us to confirm your application.

If you are a new student we will be in touch again around the offer period, normally around mid-August to early September. When the conditions of your offer of study are met you will need to log in to your account and check the status of your application.

If you receive an offer of accommodation you must accept within the deadline as stated on your offer. We recommend checking the status of your application regularly. You will be required to register card information and create a payment plan to accept your offer. You will potentially need to make a pre-payment depending on your student status.
