Apply for a hall of residence
The application process for a hall of residence starts before the enrolment process, so most students will apply for a hall of residence even before being accepted into a university course.
Applications for the Academic Year or Semester 1 (February) open on 1 August in the year prior to study.
Applications for Semester 2 (July) are due 1 May in the year of study. Late applications will be accepted if places are still available.
