  • The closing date for on-line submission of residence applications by undergraduate returning applicants for each year is the end of September.
  • Residence admission is based on need, academic potential, ability to pay and distance from home.
  • Competition for places is high and not all applicants can be accommodated.  Successful applicants are placed where spaces are available.  Other applicants will have to find accommodation off campus and should use the Private Accommodation database provided on this website.
