If you know who you want to share with, you have until 1 August 2023 to make your allocation requests or sharer bookings, subject to availability. We can't guarantee that we can accommodate your request, but we'll do our best to allocate you together.
You can do this from within your accommodation account, at the time of booking, if your booking is for:
- a space in a shared room or a room in a hall that has a flat-style layout - This will book you into exactly the same room/room type in the same flat. The process is as follows:
Step 1 - sharer/flatmate 1 must make their booking and specify that they know who they would like to share their room with
Step 2 - sharer/flatmate 1 will then receive a 'sharer code' to send to sharer/flatmate 2
Step 3 - sharer/flatmate 2 must use the 'sharer code' within 24 hours of sharer/flatmate 1's booking being made. This will allocate sharer/flatmate 1 and sharer/flatmate 2 into the same room, or flat. (sharer/flatmate 2 shouldn't make a booking before receiving the 'sharer code' from sharer/flatmate 1).
The process works in the same way for triple rooms (sharer 1 should send the 'sharer code' to both sharer 2 and 3).
- If you would like to request to live in a shared room or flat after you have made your booking, please enter your allocation request in the 'My summary screen' in your accommodation account. Remember to complete this by 1 August 2023. For the allocation request to be considered, the request must be reciprocated.
- Please remember that we can't guarantee that we can accommodate your request but we'll do our best to allocate you together.
Make an allocation request
We can accept one sharer/allocation request per each student who has booked a space in a shared room, or a room in a hall with a flat-style layout. If you don't have a booking for a shared room or a room in a hall with flat-style layout, you won't be able to make an allocation request. We are unable to accept any other allocation requests.
