We can't guarantee that you'll receive an offer once you join the waiting list, but we will try to find a space for you. You'll receive regular updates about available rooms and other relevant information by email. If we can offer you accommodation via the waiting list, we will notify you by email.
When do we start to make offers to students on the waiting list?
We will start to make offers from 1 June 2019 onwards, where possible. For undergraduate halls we are not likely to be able to make offers before 16 August 2019 (one day after A level results day). That's because we are unlikely to have vacancies in undergraduate halls before that date.
How do we decide who gets an offer first?
We offer vacancies according to where they become available. For example we will offer a room in a graduate hall to any graduate students on the waiting list first. However, we will give priority to new students, and where possible, to new undergraduate students.
This means that we offer:
rooms in graduate halls or flats to new graduate students first
rooms in undergraduate halls to new undergraduate students first
(but we are unlikely to have vacancies before 16 August 2019)
rooms in mixed halls to new undergraduate students first, unless they are in a graduate flat or a graduate floor
