You may apply for University accommodation by completing an online application via these web pages. PLEASE NOTE: You will need a valid email address to complete the application. The link to the online application is at the bottom of this page BUT we recommend that instead of immediately scrolling down you read through the information below and any appropriate links.
For those of you who are guaranteed an offer of University accommodation - find out if you are guaranteed - you must submit an application within the following specified deadlines to qualify for that guarantee.
If you are a registered University of Manchester student and wish to live in University accommodation for the next academic year, applications will be considered from December of each current year. For the academic year 2013/14 the closing date is Friday the 15th February 2013. Once applications are received they are collated at the Accommodation Office then distributed to the Halls. The Wardens of each Hall of Residence decide which students can be offered a room. Every student will be notified of the outcome of their application via email by the Friday 5th April 2013. This will still allow plenty of time to find alternative accommodation in the private sector if your application for university accommodation is unsuccessful.
If you submit an application after this date we will only be able to consider it in August 2013 after the new students have been allocated accommodation.
If you are not yet a registered University of Manchester student you must submit an application by 31st August of each year for arrival from September of that year. If you hold a conditional offer DO NOT wait until it is made unconditional.
If you have been offered a place at the University of Manchester on an exchange programme, you must submit an application by 31 July of each year for arrival from September of that year.
If you have any special needs or requirements please include these on the application form or in an accompanying letter.
The Accommodation Office will endeavour as far as possible to take account of individual needs when allocating places in residences. However, separate accommodation is not designated for particular cultural, religious groups. If you wish any medical condition to be taken into account with your application, you must enclose a statement from your doctor (this will need to be posted separately if you are applying online). All information is treated as strictly confidential.
