Applying for Halls

The substantial investment in the University’s accommodation in recent years reflects our aim to provide rooms in halls of residence for all first-year, full-time undergraduate students who wish to live on campus.

How do I apply?

How to Apply for AccommodationIf you have applied to Edge Hill University and firmly accepted a conditional or unconditional offer of a place to study with us, you will be sent an email to the address you provided to UCAS which will explain the application process for on-campus accommodation.

If you have any additional support needs, for example if you have a physical or sensory impairment which may mean you require one of our adapted bedrooms, please indicate this on your accommodation application form.

How are rooms allocated?

How Are Rooms AllocatedWe are guaranteeing a place in our halls of residence, for Year 1 of your course, to all new first-year undergraduate students from the UK and EU who are starting a full-time programme in September 2019.

This offer is subject to you making Edge Hill University your first choice by accepting a Conditional Firm or Unconditional Firm offer before 31st July 2019.

If you accept the offer of a place for September 2019 entry after this date, it may be necessary to prioritise the allocation of remaining rooms, due to demand, based on factors such as the distance from your home address to the University. Priority will be given to care leavers, disabled students with additional requirements, and international students.

Please note, while we will endeavour to place you in your preferred type of accommodation, this cannot be guaranteed and there is a possibility that you may be offered an alternative (for example, a catered package if you asked for self-catered).

The final allocation of halls will be announced in August following the publication of examination results. You will be informed of the outcome of your application for on-campus accommodation via email and sent a Licence Agreement.
