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 via email. If we can offer you accommodation via the waiting list, we will notify you by email.
From when do we make offers to wait-listed students?
This will be after mid-July 2017 for new graduate students and after 18 August 2017 for returning undergraduate students up to any point before check-in day.
How we decide who gets an offer first
We sort applications on the waiting list into three priority groups. Students in the first priority group will be offered accommodation first. Then we move on to the second priority group and so on. Within each group, rooms are offered through a lottery system. The only exceptions are urbanest and Lilian Knowles House, where rooms are offered on a first come, first served basis.
