Eat and Drink credit
You can apply to live in accommodation that comes with Eat and Drink credit, to spend in our range of food and drink outlets on campus.
Alternatively, you can choose accommodation without Eat and Drink credit. All accommodation options include a communal kitchen, where you can cook for yourself and your flatmates.
You will need to pick seven accommodation types you would like to live in, such as en-suite or standard. You will need to rank them in your order of preference from highest to lowest.
We’ll do our best to place you in your preferred room type, but we cannot guarantee this.
When doing your application, you can request to live in mixed or single-sex accommodation.
If you are an eligible first-year undergraduate, you can also tell us if you would prefer to live in accommodation that is designated as:
- for mature students
If you choose one of these options, it’ll be considered together with your room type preferences, although it is not guaranteed.
If you have a disability or medical condition
Make sure you tell us so that we can consider your needs when looking at accommodation applications.
If you are eligible for the Accommodation Bursary, you could receive either £500 or £1,250 off your first year's university-owned accommodation costs.
We are committed to providing a safe and happy environment for students to live in, whatever their choice of accommodation. We value diversity and inclusivity, and want everyone to be treated with respect.
For example, we can help you if you:
- are trans and/or gender diverse; we may be able to place you in an en-suite bedroom or a studio
- are non-binary or intersex; we can look at allocating you to a mixed-gender flat
To speak to someone about applying under these circumstances, contact our Student Living team at firstname.lastname@example.org. The team is available to support you through every step of your move to University accommodation.
