Why haven’t I been allocated my 1st choice of accommodation?

Unfortunately, we do not guarantee that you will receive your 1st choice of accommodation. Your preferences have been used as a guideline in allocating your accommodation and we have made every effort to allocate you to your preferred accommodation but this was influenced by the availability of rooms at the time of allocating.

The accommodation is allocated by a computerised system on a first come first served basis in date and time order of application. However, certain students have priority and their accommodation may have been allocated as a higher priority than yours. Please see our Accommodation Priorities Policy for further information.
