Acceptance Procedure

How do I activate my Aberystwyth University email?

Information services will e-mail you from July onwards with information on how to activate your Aberystwyth University e-mail. As soon as you receive this e-mail you should activate your account. This will ensure there are no delays securing your accommodation. Once your Aberystwyth University e-mail has been activated, all correspondence will be sent to this e-mail so it is important you check it regularly.

What is the Accommodation Occupation Contract?

Once you have accepted your accommodation offer, you will be required to complete the Accommodation Occupation Contract (this must be done by the deadline date given to you).

The Accommodation Occupation Contract includes:

  • The terms and conditions of your occupation contract.
  • Our online payment system to pay the required acceptance fee and to set up a payment plan for your accommodation fees.
  • Information on living in university residences.
  • Online Induction Programme. 

What if I cannot accept my Occupation Contract by the deadline?

You are required to complete the Accommodation Occupation Contract by a given deadline date.  If you haven't completed the contract by the given deadline, your room will be released.

Even if you are on holiday, most places should have internet connection which allows you to check your e-mails regularly.

Both your Occupation Contract and your payment of acceptance fees must be done online.

If there are any further issues, please do not hesitate to contact us.

I also have accommodation in the private sector - what are my options?

You will need to decide which accommodation you prefer. It is advisable that if you have already signed a contract with either the University or in the private sector, you do not sign for another until you know if you can be released from your current contract – otherwise, you may be liable for two sets of rent. 

Can I change my accommodation booking?

You can cancel your room at any time before you arrive by logging in to the Accommodation Portal.  You can then select an alternative room (subject to availability).

After you have moved in, you are able to complete a transfer request form which may allow you to move rooms – please see our Transfer webpage for further details.
