Apply for Accommodation

We're still accepting accommodation bookings for September 2021!

We guarantee accommodation to all students, including those joining Northumbria University through Clearing and Adjustment, or on a Foundation programme.


Log into your student portal to start your application.


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. Complete your room reservation form

Submit your accommodation preferences and choose whether you want en-suite facilities or you are happy to share the bathroom areas with your flatmates. We recommend providing a minimum of three accommodation preferences. You can also specify if you prefer a self-contained studio flat or a single-gender flat. 

You will receive a room offer via email based on your preferences, so please keep checking your emails regularly. 

4. Sign your contract

You will be asked to sign your contract online as a part of your booking.

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

You will need to make a £250 advance rent payment to complete the booking.

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.
