Applying for halls of residence

​​​​​You can apply for halls of residence online. To apply, you will need:

  1. To have accepted an unconditional/conditional offer from the university, or be a returning student
  2. A university network account (see how to set up your university network account​)

You can choose up to 3 halls/room types on your application​ but rooms are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis so we cannot guarantee you will get your first choice. The earlier you apply, the better.

To begin your application, visit the accommodation portal:


When do I get confirmation that I've been allocated a room?

W​e will get back to you with a room offer as soon as possible after you have submitted an application. At this point you will need to make a payment of £200 and set up a direct debit for your rent payment. If you accept an offer of a place in residence, you will be signing a legally-binding contract for the full period stated on the offer letter.

Returning students applying for 2019/20: instructions about accepting your room offer will be emailed to the email address detailed on your student record at the time of application from Thursday January 31st 2019 onwards. This will include instructions on completing the room acceptance process via our halls portal. Here you will be given details of your room, dates of occupancy, rent and the full terms and conditions. You will need to make a payment of £200 at this time and set up a direct debit for rent payment within seven days of receiving your room offer. If you accept an offer of a place in residence, you will be signing a legally-binding contract for the full period stated on the offer letter.

​Students with disabilities

​The university’s halls of residence have accessible rooms on all campuses. These rooms tend to be larger than the other rooms in halls with more accessible bathroom facilities and flexible interiors to suit the level of need required.​

The university endeavours to accommodate the needs of students with disabilities. In order to assist the accommodation office with specific requirements, we encourage you to initially contact one of our disability advisers. Call 01242 714541 or email disability@glos.ac.uk and state your requirements.
