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

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.

Applications open from the end of March, and Frenchay Campus accommodation are some of the most popular choices.

Late applicants

If you submit your application after 8 June, there may still be vacancies and others may come up over the coming months. We can keep you up to date on that. However, it’s probably a good idea to start looking for 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 can submit this any time from mid to late March onwards.

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.
