Due to the combination of online and hybrid learning we will be delivering in the first semester of our next academic year, we are aware you may prefer a choice of more flexible accommodation options. Please see below for more details on the range of options available in our University halls of residence:
(You will be able to take up any of these options, even if you have already been offered, or accepted a standard accommodation contract for this coming year.)
Standard accommodation contract, which runs for the full academic year (41 weeks, from 16 September 2020 to 1 July 2021).
January start, which runs from early January to 1 July 2021.
Semester 1, which runs from 16 September 2020 to mid-January 2021.
Semester 2, which runs from mid-January to end-May 2021.
If you are a continuing student whose course is being delivered online in semester one and you are either holding or have accepted an accommodation offer from the University, we understand you may like to amend your choice to one of the flexible options listed above. Please contact email@example.com and the team will be happy to guide you through the options and amend the dates, keeping your existing room allocation wherever possible.
Although the University has limited accommodation for continuing students, anyone who has not yet applied is welcomed to do so here – and all the options above are available. Please let us know which dates you would like to book in the notes section of your application, and contact the accommodation team if you have any queries.
In addition to these options, the University will shortly be making available a flexible ‘short-stay’ option to all students (including maritime cadets) whose course is being delivered in a hybrid/block teaching, format. This will allow for accommodation stays between 7 and 28 days. This option will be available to book online, subject to availability, when timetables are released next month.
The University is also in close contact with private accommodation providers around the city and are working closely with them, many of which are also able to provide flexible housing options.
If you have any questions, or would like to discuss how any of these options could work for you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about private accommodation, please take a look at this information sheet.
