Most people will be able to do this after the A-level results have been released.
Our online application system doesn't open until August so, in the meantime, we recommend that you read up on our Colleges. By looking at the room types and facilities that are available in each College you should get a clear picture of what is most important to you e.g. cost, bathroom facilities, location, catering. Then, when the time comes to apply, you can make an informed choice.
Choosing a College
The location of your academic department shouldn't affect your choice of College because all of our campus accommodation is within easy walking distance of teaching rooms, library, sports centre, catering outlets and bars.
When can I apply for my accommodation?
- If you have accepted an Unconditional offer before August you can apply from Wednesday 7 August
- If you are waiting for your A-Level or other exam results, you can apply from Tuesday 20 August
- If you have selected York as your Insurance choice you can apply from Wednesday 21 August
- Everyone must apply by 1pm Saturday 24 August in order to be guaranteed a room booking
How does the application system work?
You will usually receive a room booking within three days of submitting your application and you will be asked to make a £260 advance payment in order to confirm your booking.
