Whether you prefer a high-end room, or a more affordable option, we've got something for everyone at the University of Roehampton.

You can now apply for accommodation for the 2021/22 academic year.

Apply now  

Please see Contracts page for full accommodation terms and conditions.

All full-time and part-time students, home, EU and overseas students are eligible to apply for on-campus accommodation. Part-time students will be expected to accept full-time tenancies. We have a guarantee for new students applying for accommodation by the deadline of on-campus accommodation, and the right to change your mind for any reason. Full details of the deadlines for both are in our 'accommodation guarantee'.

How to complete the online application - new students

You need to have a firm offer from the University and your Roehampton Student ID number. The number begins with the first three letters of your surname. It may also be referred to as your Student reference. If you should have any difficulty with locating this, please contact Accommodation.

You will need to choose a preferred College for your accommodation, and then list the room types in order of what you most prefer. Then select what is more important to you: location or room type. Please include all additional information which will help us to place you in the most suitable accommodation that you want (for instance if you prefer to live on a particular floor or in a single-sex flat). We will do our best to meet your preferences as much as possible, depending on date of application and room availability.

If you are a UK student and you don't know how much you will be receiving for your maintenance loan, you can use this student finance calculator to get an estimate of how much you will get. 

If you have a medical condition or disability which means you need a particular room type or are unable to live off campus, please include this information. Please note that you should complete and return a self-assessment form, part of which involves obtaining confirmation from a medical professional.

If supported by Disability Services you will have priority for a room on-campus for all years you require accommodation.

If you miss the guarantee deadlines you should still apply for accommodation.  The online application remains open and your application will be considered on a first come first served basis.

How to complete the online application - continuing students

If you are a current student who has previously created an account, then you don't need to make an account again, you can log in with your original email address you registered with. We are afraid that if you have previously been required to leave University accommodation because of behaviour or have rental arrears for university accommodation, you are not eligible to apply.

There is a variety of on-campus accommodation available to continuing students across all the colleges for 2021/22.

The accommodation available for continuing students is shown on the individual block webpages.  Rooms are offered on a first come first served basis.  Applications open in February for September intake. 

Accepting a room

Offers of accommodation are sent via email during the summer time. To accept a room you will need to follow the instructions in your offer email and pay the deposit, provide payment details and agree the Terms and Conditions.

Please read through the information on this page then apply using the link above. Do make sure you read this page first as it contains important information regarding on how to apply, when you will be offered a room, and important information about accepting a room.

When you accept your offer, this is a legally binding contract. Please see Contracts page for the full terms and conditions, which contains important information.

Should we not be able to offer you a room we will let you know as soon as possible and keep your name on the waiting list.  Often, once term has started, rooms become available and you will be offered according to the date of your application.  We will also help you in finding off-campus accommodation if necessary.
