    **ACCOMMODATION APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED**

    Hey guys!

    If you have a conditional/unconditional offer from Goldsmiths that you've firmly accepted, you'll be able to apply for Goldsmiths Accommodation from 12pm on Tuesday, May 10th.

    If the above applies to you, you should have received/soon receive an email with instructions on how to apply, though you can check all the details here: http://www.gold.ac.uk/accommodation/apply/. This page includes info on the deadlines, so be sure you get your application in on time. It's recommended that you submit your application as early as possible, as we do receive more applications than we have places available.

    If you've chosen Goldsmiths as your insurance choice you will be able to apply once your offer turns unconditional and you have firmly accepted your academic place.

    Continuing students can also apply from the time and date above.

    Oh, and congratulations on your offers! We look forward to seeing you soon!!

    If you have any questions you're welcome to post here, or contact [email protected]

    All the best,

    Shaun

    Hi,
    I sent my application earlier and I was just wondering will we only find out where we're allocated once we've got our results?
    I'm just quite keen to find out where I'll be out of the 20 different rooms I was asked to apply for.
    Also, is it first come, first served? Will I have a greater chance of getting the room I want (or getting a room at all) because I submitted my application early?

    Cheers,
    Judah

    Hi Judah,

    Thanks for your message.

    Applications are ordered by date received (among other factors), so applying for accommodation as early as possible will give you the best chance of being allocated a place.

    I recommend taking a look at this page on our website, it answers questions regarding the allocation process and when applicants will start getting notified: http://www.gold.ac.uk/accommodation/apply/

    If you have any additional questions not covered on the link above, it's best to get in touch with our accommodation team via [email protected]

    I hope this helps!

    All the best,

    Hi Shaun,

    I'm currently trying to access the site to create an application, however it seems that I cannot register. The page keeps reloading, saying that both my student ID and DOB are incorrect, even though they are! Can this be resolved?

    Thanks,

    Hi Ciara,

    Thanks for your message. Apologies that you've been experiencing issues registering. I can confirm that the application website isn't currently experiencing technical issues as far as we know. Have you fully confirmed your offer? Once you've confirmed your offer it may take up to 24 hours for this to be completely processed within our application system.

    If you are still experiencing difficulties registering, please contact [email protected] for further guidance.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Shaun,

    Any idea how long it will take before they give us news about our accommodation. I applied on may 11th and got confirmation, just waiting on allocation now. Any rough ETA would be much appreciated.

    Hi LVRG,

    Thanks for your message. Those with firm unconditional offers will be contacted around mid-July in regards to their accommodation allocation. Then there'll be a second round of allocations in mid-August.

    I hope this helps! If you have any further queries you're welcome to get in touch with our Accommodation team via [email protected]

    Hi Shaun,

    Do applicants who are already living in London get put on the waiting list for halls automatically?
    If so, when are applicants on the waiting list told whether or not they've been allocated halls??

    Thanks !

    Hi flora107,

    Thanks for your message.

    First priority is given to applicants who live outside the M25, though London applicants will still be considered. Note that London applicants may not be allocated until September. If you have any further queries you are welcome to get in touch with our dedicated Accommodation team via [email protected]

    Hello,

    I have already written to Accommodation Office but I thought I would write it here too. Maybe I will get a quicker response.

    On 09.06 (Thursday) I received an email saying that I was offered a place at Goldsmiths. Till that day, on my application account there was no information such as conditional/unconditional next to the 'Entry Decision'. Even after that email, the status did not show up. I guess it has only just changed within last two days. I have found it out today and have confirmed the offer. Just now, I have tried to log into accommodation website but it does not work and seems to be broken. What should I do in this situation? The deadline for accommodation is today.

    Many thanks for any help,

    Victoria
    Hi Victoria,

    I recommend calling the Accommodation directly to address this, please call them as soon as you can via +44 (0)20 7919 7192/7130

    Let me know how you get on.

    Lovely, thanks!

    What happens if I find the halls they place me unsuitable? Is there a differal/ refusal option? I was looking at private accommodation but have already applied for halls. I'm only asking as I'm a mature student living in London and waiting till September only to realise that the allocated halls aren't suitable for me will be a massive headache.

    Do you have any idea when we are likely to find out if we've been accepted into halls?
