You can apply for on and off campus Band D, however I would not recommend it.

Is it possible to apply for the same band on and off campus?
Band D's are massively oversubscribed, in general, both on and off campus. I still quote the statistic I was given a just over a year ago. 8 applicants for each Band D room, many people will be disappointed. If you put down Band D's for both your first and second choice, then you may then have put down Band C as your 3rd (or if you are desperate for an en-suite, you might have Band E as your 3rd). This then puts you behind all those who 2nd(/3rd) preferences is a Band C and behind those whose first preference is a Band C. Then you have to consider slipping down to Band B or A, your 4th/5th choices. I know of this happening to people.
I would recommend if you really want an en-suite that you simply put it as your first choice (on or off campus) and then continue from there.
Side note; hold **** there is now Band F's... god dammit why -.-
