Postgraduate students (new and returning)

Please contact the Accommodation Officer of your residence to confirm your arrival dates and times.

We regret that because the number of residence applications exceeds the number of residence vacancies, applicants who do not receive written confirmation of an offer of a place in a residence will need to arrange private accommodation off campus.
