Living on campus
New undergraduate, postgraduate, research and clearing students who have applied for accommodation; met the conditions of their course offer; and confirmed their acceptance of a place at Brunel can apply for a campus room. If you have completed an online application form your details will be added to the waiting list. The Accommodation Team will contact you by email prior to your arrival date stated on your application with further details of what accommodation is available. Please be advised accommodation during term time is subject to availability and we try to meet your preferences if your specific room type is available.
We recommend that students apply for accommodation as early as possible as some room types are often oversubscribed.
Your room offer will include instructions on how to accept your Licence Agreement online. At the same time, you will be asked to pay a £250 deposit to secure your room offer by a stated deadline date, along with arrival, key collection information.
You must accept the Licence Agreement and pay your deposit by the deadline stated in the room offer email, or your room allocation would be cancelled.
If you have not requested a room on campus and would now like to do so, please submit an application form. You will be asked to create an account through which you will manage your accommodation throughout your studies.
To find out more about the application process and our accommodation facilities please visit accommodation at Brunel or visit the Accommodation Centre Question and Answer Centre.
