Apply for Accommodation

Bookings for 2022 are now open.

Visit the Student Portal to start your booking and select your bedroom. We guarantee accommodation to all students, including those joining Northumbria University on a Foundation programme.

 

You can book accommodation in five easy steps:

1. Confirm Northumbria University as your FIRM choice on UCAS.

2. Visit the Student Portal and log in to the Accommodation section where you can start your booking.

Wait up-to 48 hours for UCAS to update and using your applicant portal login details (you will have received this via email when you applied) select the Accommodation section to start your application.

Top Tip: Make sure you register with your personal email address and not one associated to a school/college. School/College email addresses are often closed after you leave and can delay the process.

3. Select your bedroom

Select the exact bedroom you want to live in based on real-time availability by using our self-selection system. Browse through the available options and see the exact location of your bedroom. You can also see some general details about your flatmates, such age, country of origin, course and level of study.

Did you know? If you are a postgraduate student, the booking system will automatically show you available flats with other postgraduate students or students who might be in their final year.  

4. Complete your contract 

Once you are happy with your room selection, you are required to sign a tenancy agreement to accept and confirm your accommodation booking. This is completed online and you receive a confirmation email with all relevant documents. 

Top Tip: Make sure you read your contract carefully as it is a legally binding contract. If you don’t understand anything, get in touch, we will be happy to run through it with you.

5. Pay your advance rent payment

The final step of your booking is making an advance rent payment of £250. Once the payment has been made, the room is secured for you. This payment is part of your total accommodation cost and is used towards your final rent payment. 

 

Once you've completed the process above, the room is secured for you. You will also get access to our dedicated Facebook groups to help you connect with flatmates before you arrive.

Your data will be processed in accordance with our accommodation Privacy Notice. By submitting your application you are confirming that you have read this privacy notice.
