The Booking Procedure for continuing students

How to apply for accommodation

Everyone who is eligible and has met all conditions to study on a full-time course at St Edmund’s College, will be able to book the accommodation online (subject to availability). For the dates when the accommodation booking portal will be available see the annual calendar of events above.

During the booking process, students will be able to select and book the grade, location and room number that they want from the accommodation that is still available. Make sure you choose the accommodation that will suit you best by doing research via our website before you apply. Once a room has been reserved, users will not be able to change the selection.

Instructions about logging in and step-by-step online booking will be emailed once a student is entitled to book accommodation when bookings open following the annual calendar of events above. Users can start an application and log back in another time to complete it but applications left for more than 24 hours will reset.

  • The Booking Procedure for continuing students:

Undergraduates: We will process accommodation allocation for continuing undergraduate students following the accommodation Annual calendar or events displayed above. Everyone who is offered a room, will have to make their selection from the rooms available at that time, unless you have particular needs related to a disability which you have discussed with the Welfare team in advance.

Postgraduates: Booking portal links will be sent to continuing postgraduate students following the annual calendar of events above. PhD students in their fourth year and beyond will not be allocated accommodation unless they can prove they will be paying Tuition Fees. No exception is made if the student did not live in College in one of the previous 3 years.

  • The booking process for families, couples and specific needs:

Family/couples Accommodation: family and couples accommodation cannot be booked through the online portal straight away due to limited availability, please contact the Accommodation Office directly to book.

Specific Accommodation Needs: medical and disability needs Requests for accommodation that include provision for medical and/or disability needs should be notified to the College as early as possible. Medical or other reports are required, and these can take time to obtain and evaluate.

  • Continuing students: If you have specific accommodation needs related to a disability or medical condition, please contact your Tutor.
  • If your financial circumstances have changed substantially since you began your course and you are concerned about your ability to meet your rent commitments, please contact your Tutor.
