Accommodation - University of Leeds

Parents' Pages

The application process

We guarantee an offer of accommodation to new, single, undergraduate students providing they have applied by the 1st July deadline. Those applying after the deadline (or through clearing) are not guaranteed accommodation, but we will try very hard to make them an offer.

We house nearly 8,000 students in our accommodation and this is mostly new, undergraduate students. We also house postgraduate students and returning undergraduate students. However, we always house new undergraduates together so your son or daughter's flatmates will also be new to Leeds and the University.

Prospective undergraduates should apply for accommodation once they have informed UCAS that the University of Leeds is their firm or insurance choice. The online application opens on the 1st November each year and the deadline is the 1st July for the following September.

Please let us know if there are any medical or dietary reasons that we may need to take into consideration when allocating accommodation. Any medical reasons will need evidence submitted with the application form (such as a letter from their doctor) and an additional requirements form should be completed and returned to us.  

If your son or daughter changes their mind or decides to defer after having their place at Leeds confirmed, they should call us to let us know. If they are returning to Leeds the following September, they will to apply for accommodation again after the 1st November. They may need to contact us after the 1st November so that we can make their application 'live' for the next academic year.
