Visiting Staff and Departmental Visitors
Accommodation during term-time is not possible due to the high demand from students.
There is also a choice of local accommodation (hotels and bed and breakfast) that you may wish to consider.
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, the Accommodation Office should be able to assist you.
Accommodation is available on campus between 2pm 7 June 2013 and 10am 7 September 2013. The Accommodation Office 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 March). 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.
|Summer period for visitors||2pm 7 June 2013 until 10am 7 September 2013|
|Standard room - staff and departmental visitors||£114.59 per week|
|En suite room - staff and departmental visitors||£146.44 per week|
A minimum booking of 1 week will apply.
All bookings require a payment of accommodation fees in advance to secure a room, further details will be provided upon application.
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. The minimum booking period/charge is one week and the maximum stay is until 10am 7 September 2013. The contract for your longer stay is treated as a new contract, therefore the minimum stay of one week re-applies. All bookings require a payment of accommodation fees in advance to secure a room. 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.

Keys have to be returned to the Residence Office. Please do not return them to the Security Office or leave them with a friend.
