Accommodation timeline

As an incoming undergraduate you will be invited to apply for college membership and accommodation from June in the year you are due to start. We will contact all students that have accepted a place on a course by email, inviting them to create an account and submit an application. This process will continue throughout the summer as more students accept places.

If you have an unconditional offer or are deferring entry we will still contact you at the appropriate time, but unfortunately we can’t accept applications any earlier.

We will send your offer of accommodation by email and ask that you log back into your online account to view the details and accept or reject it. This offer will reflect the best match to the preferences you express in your application and you will have seven days to consider it. If we don't hear back from you within that time we will be unable to hold the room, so please make sure that you have regular access to your email account.

We do not make any undergraduate room offers until the UK exam results are published in mid-August and we know who is definitely coming.

Please note that demand for rooms is high and that if you choose to reject our offer we will be unable to make an alternative. You are advised to contact your Accommodation Manager to discuss any queries that you may have.

When you click to accept the offer you are accepting the Terms and Conditions of the contract presented to you. You will also be directed to secure the room by paying a £200 deposit, refundable at the end of the contract providing no deductions have been made.

The contract you accept is legally binding, and sets down the conditions of the agreement between yourself and the University. You cannot be released from it, and will be obliged to pay all accommodation fees relating to it. You must therefore budget carefully, making sure you have enough money to manage during your time in Lancaster. Please make sure you understand this completely before applying for or accepting a room.

In the lead up to your arrival date your Accommodation Manager will be in touch with your invoice and information about collecting your keys.

Please note that we don't issue room numbers in advance.
