Summer vacation accommodation

If you are a departmental visitor or a member of staff who has invited a visitor, or if you are a member of staff requiring accommodation yourself, Accommodation Services should be able to assist you.

Accommodation is available on campus between 2pm 10 June 2016 and 10am 4 September 2016. Accommodation Services will ask for evidence from your department/school that you are intending to visit/work at the University. Your department/school is welcome to contact us directly by email at to confirm your status. This information is required before we are able to offer you a room.

You will need to complete an online application form (the form will be available from April). This can be completed by the visitor or by the School/Department on the visitor's behalf. Prior to completing your online application, please register by choosing the "Non registered guests" option in the drop-down menu. You will only need to do this once during your stay with us.

What facilities will I have access to? 

You will have access to various facilities on campus including the library, Sport Centre, bars, food outlets, bank, shops and launderettes.

Car parking is available (for a small charge), access is by permit only, however a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space. Please note that anyone booking accommodation over the Graduation week period (11-15 July 2016) is advised that there will be parking restrictions in place during this week. Please contact Brunel University London Reception on +44 (0) 1895 274 000 for further information regarding parking on campus. Summer vacation visitor car parking permit application forms and permit costs will be available online  from June 2016 or from the University reception.

Wireless internet connection (Visitor@Brunel) is available in the Halls of Residence for our visitors. Log in details and instructions will be supplied once you have accepted your contract online. Brunel staff should be able to connect to Wifi@Brunel in their accommodation using their mobile device after you have registered it online. More information for staff can be found online.

Please note Visitor@Brunel access will be activated once the Residences Teams have checked you in on the University system. If you arrive at the weekend this may mean access is not available until next working day (e.g. Monday) when the system is updated.

What if I change my mind and want to stay longer?

If you decide you would like to stay longer you can request a new contract online. The minimum booking period/charge is one week and the maximum stay is until 10am 4 September 2016.

The latest to make a new booking is 7 days prior to the end of your existing contact. We will do our best to offer you the same room but this is not guaranteed.
