Accommodation allocation

Accommodation is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis using your preferred choice wherever possible. First year students have a choice of all residences - you can specify a first, second and third choice to suit you.

Students with disabilities/medical needs are given priority for appropriate accommodation to suit their needs.

In most circumstances, flats will contain mixed genders and students on a variety of courses (except BEd and Nursing students who are mostly located together).

Postgraduates and returning students can choose from Upper Quay and Blackfriars in Gloucester or Hardwick and Pittville in Cheltenham.

You may ask to be located with (or away from!) a friend, we will try to accommodate this but it is often subject to the timing of your application(s).
