Places in halls of residence are allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Early applications are favoured. 

Please note if your first choice is unavailable, you will be offered an alternative choice. 

Halls of residence application

Places can only be allocated to University of Westminster students who have completed a valid halls of residence application and have firmly accepted a place on a course, where the course and the student's mode of attendance are full-time.

Students must accept any offer of a room in halls of residence by the deadline given and must provide all the necessary documentation and the deposit in order for a room to be secured. 

Places are allocated for the standard academic year from September–June.

While the needs of international students are recognised, the University aims to have a mixed community in its halls of residence and operates the policy in order to maintain a mix of UK and international students.
