If you reside far away* and are eligible for this offer, our Recruitment Team will be in touch with you to arrange the details.

* To qualify for the complimentary one-night stay, offer holders must reside at least 150 miles from the University. Eligibility will be determined based on the postal code provided in your UCAS application.
