I see that applications for accommodation at Bath open on 12th April... will i have less chance of getting the accomodation I want if i apply later; the deadline for replying to my offers on ucas is 4th may so if I waited until early may and then decided to firm bath and apply for accomodation, will I have less chance?

Also, does any one know how it works, ie do you choose multiple locations or do you specify the type of facilities you want, what are my chances of getting en suite?

thanks

You pick 3 types of accomodation in order of preference.

The accomodation is given on a 'first come, first serve' basis so if you wait too long after the opening date to apply for the accomodation, you might not get the en-suite room you want.

Hope this helps

You're a male going to a historic town to study. An En-Suite room breeches my moral code - and hopefully yours as well.

Hi Alex,

As you can see on our website, applications for accommodation are processed in order of the date and time that they are submitted, so accommodation is allocated on a first come first serve basis. This means that as more people apply for accommodation, certain accommodation options will be removed from the application process due to high demand. You can only apply for accommodation once you have firmed your Bath offer, and then you will be required to register online and apply for accommodation by selecting three choices in order of preference.

From my personal experience of applying for accommodation, some options tend to be removed very quickly (e.g. within the first few hours). When I applied the most popular types of accommodation seemed to be those with en-suite rooms such as Marlborough and Solsbury, but this is likely to vary from year to year so may not necessarily be the same when you apply. However, I would advise applying early (on the day applications open if possible) to give you the best chances of getting the accommodation option that you prefer. Although, if you have not firmed Bath by this date, try not to worry too much as we guarantee a room in university accommodation to all eligible students providing the accommodation application is received by the guarantee deadline, which is usually around early July.

If you have any other questions please feel free to quote me!

Hi there!

Chris here, a first year Computer Science undergraduate.

Before applying for accommodation, you must have confirmed your firm acceptance of a course offer with us.

Successful applicants will be contacted by the University before accommodation applications open.
We guarantee a room in University accommodation to all eligible students as long as we receive an application by our guarantee deadline.
This is usually in early July. We will confirm the guarantee deadline date for 2016 intake nearer the time.

This year, the date when applications open is on or around 12th April. You should be notified by email when the portal is open.

Hope this helps!

Chris

I have no idea. I got mine yesterday, an entire month after I firmed my place. I think, though, that they are slowly getting their together. Expect one within the next week, otherwise email them yourself!

I just phoned them - we should get an email in next few days. If you haven't had one by Friday then phone the accommodation office 😄
