Accommodation Allocations

You'll receive your accommodation booking email by email once your place at USW becomes unconditional firm (and you are eligible to enrol on your course). For most students, this will be after the exam results are announced in the summer. International students will also need a valid visa application. Please see below for information on each location.

If you applied for halls on or before 30th June 2019, hold an Unconditional Firm offer and are eligible to enrol on a full time course of study at USW, we will send you an invitation to complete your room selection and confirm your accommodation between the following dates:

From 1st August 2019

To 22nd August 2019

On an ad-hoc basis thereafter, depending on availability.


Making your room selection and confirming the offer

The room selection email will contain a link to the online portal and log-in information. It will provide you with the date on which you must complete your room selection. It will also contain instructions on how to select your room.  

IMPORTANT:  You must complete your room selection and pay the pre-payment on the date specified in your room selection email.  


Rejecting the room offer

You do not have to accept our offer of accommodation. If you reject it, we may not be able to make you another offer unless there are special circumstances that we were unaware of at the time of allocation. Your next step may then be to find private accommodation.

What if I miss my room selection date?

If you miss your room selection date, please contact us to request a new one.  You may have to wait for other applicants to complete their room assignments before you can be offered a new date. 

The allocation process

  • We allocate rooms via a self-assignment model.


  • When you receive your offer email, you will log on to select a room from the list available.


  • Applicants who have declared a disability and require a specific room/room type and/or adjustments may be send an offer of a specific room by the allocations team. 

  • Early bird students who apply for accommodation before 30th June will be allocated the first room selection dates.

  • Room availability always depends upon the popularity of accommodation types and the number of applicants.   Mountain halls rooms for example, are very popular and the number of applications is always higher than the number of available rooms.   You will see a list  or a map of the available rooms when you log in to complete your room booking. 

  • Late applicants (applications submitted after 30th June) will only be allocated a room if there are any still available.

Delays affecting your accommodation offer

If there is a delay to your course offer becoming Unconditional Firm, it is likely to affect your chances of being allocated your preferred room. Delays can include things like not achieving your offer grades and going through the appeal process.
