Processing Your Application

New Student Applications

Applications for the next Academic Year (commencing September) will be actioned as follows:

If you are guaranteed an offer of University accommodation and your place on a programme of study is already unconditional we shall email you from June onwards, prior to start of the academic year in September, to let you know the residence to which you have been allocated.

If you are guaranteed an offer of University accommodation but your place is conditional on examination results your place in a residence will be allocated after your place becomes unconditional. Undergraduates do not need to notify this office of your results, as our database will automatically be updated from the Admissions database (this does not happen for postgraduates so please email us at accommodation@manchester.ac.uk as soon as your place becomes definite).

If you are not guaranteed an offer of accommodation we shall consider your application for accommodation from June onwards, prior to start of session in September and will update you on the progress of your application by 31 August of the same year, at the latest.

PLEASE NOTE: Operational requirements may mean that the halls listed on the application form undergo a change of use and may cease to be available. In such instances notification will be given via the accommodation website and via e-mail.

A full detailed explanation of how we manage applications and allocations can be found here: Application and Allocation Statement
