Full-time home fee paying postgraduate students

We will be accepting applications for housing from prospective full-time home fee paying postgraduate students. Please do be aware that we have limited availability for Postgraduate students and would advise that you read through the information about our Service Aims and Guarantees.

Find out more about our Service Aim and accommodation guarantees.

When making an application for accommodation the student has the chance to list their preference choices in order of which accommodation they would most like to secure.  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.

We recommend that you read about all the accommodation you can choose from prior to starting the application process. For information on all available accommodation types, please visit this page.

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.

Apply for 2021/22 accommodation by registering on our Housing Portal.

For more information on how to apply visit our How to Apply page.

During the application process, you should receive two emails, one to activate your account during the registration process and one to confirm your application is complete. If you do not receive these emails, please email or call 01962 827533 so we can assist you.

Housing offers will be sent out in mid-August for students starting in September 2021.
