After you have accepted your course offer on a firm basis Accommodation Services will email you an invitation to apply that contains a username and password to access the online application form.
Before applying for halls of residence please read the information below very carefully.
You can start applying once you have firmly accepted an offer for a full time course at University of South Wales and during the following timescales.
UK, EU and International students:
Applications For September 2017 Open on 1st March 2017: Applications Close: 30th June 2017
Once you have firmly accepted your offer on your course we will send you information on how to apply for on-campus accommodation.
You can log back in at any time before 30th June 2017 to amend your preferences if you wish or you can call Accommodation on 01443 482044 and we can update them for you.
If you are an International student you will only be allocated when you have both an Unconditional Firm offer and you have used your CAS to apply for a visa, you must email to notify us when you have applied for a visa. We will not allocate any international students without this.
1st Allocation – 1st August 2017;
2nd Allocation - 17th August 2017 (A-Level results day);
3rd Allocation – 25th August 2017.
Subsequent allocations will be made on an ad-hoc basis dependent on availability, if you have not been allocated a room you will receive a letter via email which notifies you of the alternative options available to you.
Please be aware that we are not able to guarantee all applicants a room in on campus accommodation, nor that we will meet your room preferences (Note: there are some room types in much higher demand than others such as Mountain Halls for example).
If you have paid the £200 pre-payment only you will need to set up an instalment plan (recurring card payment plan) to spread the cost of your fees throughout the academic year (UK/EU students). We will send out email reminders in late August with a link to set up your payment plan.
If you fail to pay the pre-payment by the reply by date stated on your offer letter (usually 7 days after the issue date), your offer will be automatically declined and your room in halls of residence will be offered to another student. Please note due to the high demand for rooms on campus, Accommodation Services will not offer any flexibility on the 7 day acceptance rule. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure you accept the room on time. Late offers may have a shorter turnaround time so it is important that you check your reply by date.
