Exam Accommodation

If rooms in the university halls of residence are vacant, they can be offered to students for 'exam accommodation', during Term 3 (Sunday 27th April 2014 to Saturday 14th June 2014) only. Students may apply for a room for the whole of this time, or for any period within this time for a minimum of a week (7 days).

What to do next? 

Making an application

  • You must have a submitted online application for accommodation for the current academic year. To do this please log onto Student Accommodation Online Services and submit an application.
  • If you are applying now, please indicate in the 'Any Other Information' box that you are applying for Exam Accommodation and provide the exact start and end date required (please note that on the 'start date' you will be able to access the room from 2pm, and on the 'end date' you will be required to vacate the room by 10am). Alternatively, please provide an approximation of the period you would like to stay, noting this is to be confirmed when the Exam Timetable is published. You must stay for a minimum of 7 nights
