When and how to apply

Once you’ve considered your accommodation options and picked out somewhere you’d like to live, the next stage is to apply.

When to apply

Accommodation applications are not open yet for 2020-2021. More information on application dates will be available closer to the time.

Once you have accepted your offer with us and accommodation applications open, you will receive an email inviting you to apply for accommodation. Frenchay Campus accommodation are some of the most popular choices.

Apply to us by 8 June, and we will guarantee you a room in University-approved accommodation (if it’s the first time you’re registering with us and you’re studying here full time).

Our accommodation guarantee

We can’t guarantee that you’ll get your preferred choice – we allocate rooms on a first-come, first-served basis. So if you’re set on living in a particular place, it’s essential to apply early to give yourself the best chance.

Late applicants

Applications close after Monday 8 June 2020 and will re-open on Thursday 13 August 2020, when you can submit a late application. There may still be vacancies, or some may become available, we can keep you up to date on that. However, due to the popularity of university accommodation and limited space we recommend you research private accommodation as well.

How to apply

Once you firmly accept an offer to study with us, we’ll send a message to your UWE Bristol welcome webpage, confirming your eligibility to apply for accommodation.

Our admissions team will email you an online application form. You should submit this as soon as you can.

Make sure you include an up-to-date email address and a mobile phone number in your UCAS information – as we’ll send all correspondence to it. Don’t use your school or college email address or an agent’s address, if you won’t have access to it in August/September.
