Application and offer process

Application process

If you’re starting your studies in September we’ll send you an email in January asking you to complete an online application form. We are unable to guarantee preferences but the information supplied will help Accommodation Services to allocate rooms.

New students who have applied for accommodation, met the conditions of their course offer and confirmed their place at Brunel by 31 August will be accommodated on campus. If you apply for accommodation after 31 August, it may take longer for us to find you a room on campus. But we have plenty of private housing options if you miss out, or you are welcome to add your name to the waiting list for a campus room.

Students entering the University through clearing/adjustment should visit the Accommodation Services' clearing/adjustment page for further information.

Deferred entry

If you’ve accepted your offer at Brunel but have chosen to defer a year, you’ll need to submit a new accommodation application for the year you’ve deferred to.

Offer/allocation process

Students awaiting A-Level results

You should expect to receive an offer of accommodation shortly after the release of A-level results. We hope to have allocated most students by the first Wednesday in September.

Students with unconditional firm offers

If you’ve  firmly accepted an unconditional offer and have submitted your online application for accommodation, you should expect to have received your allocation pack by the second week in August.

Students who apply for accommodation or met their conditions after 31 August

If you’ve firmly accepted an unconditional offer or submitted your online application for accommodation after 31 August, it may take longer for us to find you a room on campus. But we have plenty of private housing options if you miss out, or you are welcome to add your name to the waiting list for a campus room.

Students with unconditional firmly accepted offers

Full-time postgraduate and research students who have firmly accepted an unconditional offer and who have applied for accommodation by 31 August should expect to receive their allocation email by the second week in September.

Students waiting to meet the conditions of their offer

You should confirm your results to the University as soon as possible and firmly accept the place offered. You’ll be allocated accommodation once you’ve accepted your offer with the University, have an unconditional firm place and have submitted an online application form.

Applying for accommodation after 31 August

If you apply for accommodation after 31 August, it may take longer for us to find you a room on campus. But we have plenty of private housing options if you miss out, or you are welcome to add your name to the waiting list for a campus room.

 

Accepting your room allocation

You’ll receive your Licence Agreement by email. The Licence Agreement is your offer of accommodation and you’ll need to confirm your room by the deadline shown. If you think your allocation email may arrive while you are away, please ensure that someone responsible is able to deal with the paperwork/emails in your absence so that you do not lose your allocation.

To secure your accommodation you will need to:

  • Accept your Licence Agreement online before the deadline date stated in your allocation email
  • Pay the accommodation booking fee online - £350 (2016/17 single rooms)

Without payment and acceptance by the deadline date your room offer would be withdrawn and offered to another student.

Before accepting you should make sure you read, understand and agree to the terms of the Residence Regulations and the Licence Agreement as, together, they create legally binding obligations. The Licence Agreement and the Residence Regulations are governed by English Law which international students may find quite different to the law that applies in their own country. Take advice before signing if you feel you need it.
