We encourage all students to apply as early as possible to have the best chance of securing a preference choice. We allocate on a ‘first applied first allocated’ basis in date order and we aim to offer students their preference choices. However, if a student’s preference choice isn’t available (even if they apply within the deadline date) there is the possibility of being offered lower cost, lower standard, shared facilities or off campus accommodation as our guarantee of accommodation is for a room and not a specific type of room.
For those with multiple or complex needs, we strongly recommend that you contact the Disabilities and Learning Diversity Team
in Student Services and Student Housing Services as early as possible to have a discussion about your needs.
The guarantee deadline has now passed (31st May 2017). If you are making an application after this date, we will do our best to accommodate your needs but cannot guarantee a room or a particular type of room. Please contact us with as much information as possible about your needs and we will discuss your situation with you.
In order to apply for housing, you must have selected Winchester as your FIRM choice (usually through UCAS). If you have only just accepted your place (gone FIRM), please allow at least 24 hours for your acceptance to register with us.
Allocation of rooms may be based on needs as much as preference choices, and is subject to availability of suitable rooms. Evidence of medical needs is required and you will need to discuss them with both the Student Housing Services team and the Learning Diversity Team in Student Services (+ 44 (0) 1962 827341).
If you are unsure if you are covered by this category, please contact Student Housing Services (see details on right hand side of this page).
