If you require a specific allocation or change to your room, we need to know in advance - preferably when submitting your application for accommodation. This could be a minor change or addition - you may have requirement for a longer bed if you are over 6’ 4”, or you may require a small fridge for medicine or special dietary requirements, or you may need an en-suite room due to an unseen medical condition.
If you require a room with specific adaptations, the University has a few rooms which have some levels of accessibility. In these circumstances, we would advise an occupational therapist visit to ascertain whether the room is suitable for you and if there are any further adaptations required to be made in the room.
Please note that these changes/adaptations take time and need to be arranged well in advance of your arrival into the residences. We may delay or not be able to accommodate requests that are not submitted prior to your moving in date.
If the above applies to you and you have a firm offer of a place to study at Solent, you'll be able to fill in our personal needs form for living in residences.
