    It depends on the university but you shouldn't rush your decision and the university shouldnt have a too early deadline to apply for it.

    I can’t speak for all other unis, but at the university of derby, if you put them as your firm choice, you’re guaranteed to get accommodation in halls. The later you leave this, the less choice you’ll have over which halls you get but you’re guaranteed to get somewhere and to be honest all other halls here are nice so it’s not much to worry about. Have a look at your chosen universities policies over this, if they have a similar one to derby, I would just take your time choosing as you will get accommodation and you don’t want to rush your decision if you can avoid it.

    Hope this helps,

    Molly
