Most international students are guaranteed a place in University residences for the duration of your studies as long as you apply in time.

Once you have a firm offer to study with us, you can then apply for a place in University residences.

To book your accommodation, you'll need your SIMS username and password, which we will email to you after we have made you an offer to study.
