The University offers a wide range of halls accommodation on or very close to campus.
If you would like to live in University accommodation, please apply for accommodation as soon as possible. You can do this on the Accommodation portal which is accessed via RISIS (once logged in click ‘Actions’ and then 'Accommodation'). It is important that you have arranged accommodation before you arrive on campus.
E-induction and arrival
If your contract starts on Friday 18 September, Saturday 19 September of Sunday 20 September you may be able to move in earlier than these dates without any additional charge. When you book your arrival through the Accommodation Portal this will show you the dates and times available.
If your contract starts on any other date, the earliest date you can move in is the start date of your contract.
Before you arrive at your hall, you will need to complete an online e-induction. This will include information about your arrival, details of what to bring and provide an insight into hall life. Once the e-induction is live (from 24 August onwards), you will be sent a link via email. The e-induction in mandatory and must be completed before you can book to arrive in halls.
Once you have completed your e-induction, you can then book your arrival time. It is essential that you tell us when you will arrive so we can ensure that arrivals can be properly managed.
If you need to amend your arrival slot, you can log back into the Accommodation Portal and repeat the arrival booking process to pick a new time slot.
Remember, you can always check your contract details from the Accommodation Portal Dashboard.
You will need to provide your own bed linen in your hall room. Bedding packs are available to order and include a duvet, duvet cover, pillow, pillowcase and fitted sheet. If you wish to purchase a bedding pack, you will have the opportunity to do this as part of your arrival booking. You must do this before you arrive to ensure that the bedding is available to you on arrival.
Accommodation for Families and Couples
Our accommodation includes accommodation suitable for Families and Couples. This is different to the single occupancy halls. If you plan to arrive with a partner or children, you need to have applied for Families and Couples accommodation and have been made an appropriate offer.
