How to apply (undergraduates)
Both the Accommodation Office and the Housing Office will give you every assistance to find suitable accommodation either in the University residences or locally, off campus.
You must make sure you have arranged somewhere to live or at least have temporary accommodation before leaving home. Students who do not do this run the risk of arriving at Brunel with nowhere to live.
If you need to apply for a visa, ensure you allow sufficient time for the British Embassy to process your application. Failure to do so may result in late arrival and losing your room on campus.
How to apply
To be considered for a room in Brunel's halls of residence you will need to submit an application form online. Prior to the allocation period later in the year (normally in January), we will send you a letter or email requesting that you complete an online application form. This form will allow you to indicate a preference for either an en suite or a standard room, supply a mobile number for SMS (text messaging) and provide a contact email address. Please note that we are unable to guarantee preferences, but the information supplied will help the Accommodation Office complete the allocation process.

If you are an exchange, pre-sessional or English@Brunel student, please see the information for prospective international students for details of how to apply.
All the University's residences are self-catering. Students who have applied, met their conditions and confirmed their acceptance of an offer by 1 September will be accommodated on campus. In previous years students who applied later in the summer have also been allocated, but for these students accommodation is subject to availability.
Students entering the University through clearing should read the Accommodation Office's information sheet (pdf, 97.17Kb) for further information.
Students who have been accepted to study at Brunel and have chosen to defer for a year should already have been through the procedure outlined above in 'How to Apply'. Deferred students will be allocated accommodation in the summer, prior to the A-level results being released.
If you have provided the University with your email address, details of your accommodation offer will be sent to you by email. You should check your messages regularly to ensure that you respond to your offer in good time. Please ensure that you check both your Inbox and Junk Mail folders and ensure you have not met your email limit.

The Housing Office keeps a register of off-campus accommodation, and you should contact them directly for advice and assistance. Students with families are strongly advised to travel by themselves and to secure their accommodation first before their families join them.
