Application status and allocations
The allocation process will commence on 13th June 2020 and will continue on a rolling basis every 2 weeks until 6 September 2020 until the rooms have been accepted and allocated, based on the criteria listed in our Accommodation Allocation Policy (PDF File 158 KB).
Applicants will be contacted within 7 days of the allocation/offer process opening with the outcome of their application and then given 7 days to accept the offer of a room from the date on the communication, after which the offer is withdrawn.
If you do not meet the allocation criteria or hold a conditional offer on an LSBU course, you may be required to wait until late August/September before we are able to process your application. However, the Accommodation Service will contact you if this is the case.
Only our Accommodation Service can make you an offer of a place in one of our halls of residence. If your application is successful, we’ll send you an email.
Accepting your accommodation offer
Please accept your accommodation offer within seven days to avoid your offer being withdrawn.
You can accept your offer through the Online Accommodation Application System.
Please have a payment card ready to pay the £400 room-booking fee during the process. Your accommodation offer is not secured until the room booking fee payment and online acceptance process has been completed.
Once you’ve accepted your offer you’ll receive a confirmation email with all the details you need to move in!
You’ll need to pay the first instalment of your residence fees before or when you arrive at your accommodation. You can pay online, via a bank transfer or in person. Find out more about residence fee payments in the Accommodation section of the student portal MyLSBU.
If you have a confirmed Student Loan you will be required to make a minimum payment of six weeks residence fees on or before the start of the Accommodation Agreement, with the balance due when you receive your Student Loan.
