Make your application

View all the options and make your application now on the accommodation portal. On the accommodation search make sure to choose ‘Undergraduate Returner’ or ‘Postgraduate Returner’ under your application pathway.

Group applications

If you want to live with your friends next year, you can make a group application! You’ll need to apply as normal on the accommodation portal (make sure to apply for the same locations/room types). Then specify the names and student ID numbers of the people you wish to live with in your application notes so we can group you together.
