What you need to know before you apply for postgraduate student accommodation.

Check if you are eligible

Make sure you meet our requirements for accommodation before applying.

University managed accommodation

You can apply for University managed postgraduate accommodation if you have a firm offer from us and any of these are true:

  • you will be a new MA Contemporary European Studies (Euromasters) student
  • you will be a new overseas, fee-paying postgraduate
  • you have specific medical conditions or disabilities
  • you are a care leaver, estranged student or refugee
  • you are an asylum seeker in receipt of a Sanctuary Scholarship
  • you are an exchange or visiting student nominated for student accommodation by the International Mobility team
  • you are a summer pre-sessional English student with a conditional or combined offer of admission

If you're a postgraduate student from the UK, you can apply for rooms in University managed accommodation, but we cannot guarantee you a room.

Privately managed accommodation

You can also apply for Aquila Court, accommodation that is owned and managed by CRM Students.

You must have a firm offer from us, and you must also be:

  • a new overseas, fee-paying postgraduate
  • a new UK fee-paying postgraduate

If you're a UK postgraduate student, you can apply for rooms in Aquila Court, but we cannot guarantee you accommodation.

The application process for Aquila Court is the same as University managed accommodation, it must be submitted through our student accommodation application portal.

CRM Students will communicate with you after your allocation has been made.

You can find also student housing through Studentpad.

Finding a guarantor

If you live in Aquila Court and wish to pay in instalments, you must have a UK based guarantor. This is someone who will be responsible for paying your rent if you fall into debt whilst living here.

Your guarantor must live and work in the UK on a permanent basis. If you cannot provide a guarantor you can choose from two other options:

  • use a guarantor service like Housing Hand
  • pay the full rental fee up front at the start of the contract

Make sure you read the policies, procedures, terms and conditions for CRM Students carefully before you apply.

If you miss the deadline
