How to Apply

Our Accommodation Services team are on hand to help you find your perfect home for your first year, with online applications opening on 1 March. If you have any queries not addressed in our online information then contact us 

Ensure you have reviewed your accommodation options and understand the criteria of the accommodation guarantee. 

Once you have firmly accepted your offer (conditional or unconditional) at The University of Nottingham you can apply for accommodation from 9.00am on 1 March 2018 onwards.  

You will need your UCAS Personal Number to access the online form and complete registration.  Please note that insurance students can only apply for accommodation if they change their reply to Firm.

You will be required to make a selection based on the following preferences:

  • Location (including the option to select zones for University Park)
  • Room Type
  • Catered/self-catered
  • Cost
  • Contract length

 Once you have submitted your application you will receive a confirmation email and will receive further details of your accommodation offer within four weeks.  

You will need to accept your licence/tenancy agreement and terms and conditions which include your full liability for all fees (subject to registering as a full time student at The University of Nottingham).  If you are conditional and do not get the grades you need you will automatically be released from your liability.

Rooms are allocated by date order and we therefore recommend you apply as soon as you can once you have firmly accepted your offer with the University.  Please allow 48 hours after accepting with UCAS before registering on our online portal.
