Yes, our Northumbria University Experience days exclusive for offer holders are a more in depth experience compared to an open day. Now that you have narrowed down your search for where you would like to study its time to get some hands on knowledge of what it is like to be a student at Northumbria. We do this through hosting engaging course sessions that give you insight into the modules, facilities and teaching staff. In addition to this you will be in good company with like minded students interested in the same course as you.

Our On-Campus Northumbria University Experience days, provide a great opportunity for you to take a better look around the campus and get used to where you will be spending the majority of your time here at Northumbria.

You will get the chance to have conversations with current students and your teaching staff. There will be personalised subject specific talks designed for offer holders, allowing you to collaborate with other students who are applying for the same course. This allows you to meet new people ahead of starting your degree, ensuring you get the most out of your time at Northumbria and setting you up for the best possible route to your future career.

UCAS applicants

If you have applied by UCAS you will only be able to accept or decline your offer once you have received all your decisions from all your choices.  Once you have all your decisions back, you will see a date in your UCAS Hub that you need to respond to your offers by. If you do not reply by the date specified your offer will be declined automatically for you by UCAS.  It is important that you do not allow this to happen, as it may not be possible to reinstate any offers later if the course becomes full.

DfE Apply applicants

You will need to respond to your offer on your Dfe Apply portal.

Direct Applicants

If you have applied directly to the university (either online on our website, via a representative or regional office or via your Student Portal if you are a current student) you will need to accept your offer on our applicant portal. 

To do this, you should use the ‘Respond to Offer’ button on your applicant portal, choose the course you wish to respond to and then accept or decline your offer.

If you have applied for more than one course at Northumbria, you should accept the course you wish to study and decline any other applications. You can only hold one firm offer with Northumbria.

If you have previously accepted your Conditional Offer and are now unconditional you will still need to accept your Unconditional Offer if you have applied directly.

3. Select your bedroom

Book your exact bedroom online based on true building floor plans. Select the floor, flat and exact room you want. You can access information about the other flatmates too and learn their age, gender, nationality, course and flat preference. Once you're happy with the room selection, you can review and complete your contract.

4. Complete your contract 

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.
