If you are currently living in university accommodation then your summer accommodation will be available for you from when your term Licence Agreement ends.

Further details regarding moving into your summer accommodation will be sent to you by e-mail prior to your move so therefore please continue to regularly check your AU e-mail account.


Are you currently living in the Private Sector

We advise that you check your tenancy agreement end date so you know when you must vacate your current accommodation as you may need to consider alternative accommodation until your University summer accommodation is available to you.

Our term 2021/22 Accommodation Licence Agreement starts on Friday 24th September 2021. 

If you have secured a place in AU summer accommodation and have also secured a place in AU accommodation for academic year 2021/22 then you can continue to live with us until your term accommodation becomes available simply by selecting the appropriate dates on the application form.

How do I pay for summer accommodation?

As part of your Accommodation Licence Pack you will be required to set up a payment plan in order to pay for your summer accommodation fees. If you have any queries regarding payment of fees please contact the Student Fees Office

Do I need to pay a deposit?

A deposit of £100 is required to secure summer accommodation which is payable during completion of your licence pack.

If you currently live in AU accommodation your term-time deposit will continue to be used during your summer stay. If your deposit has fallen below £100 then you will be required to make a top-up payment. 

Details on deposit refunds are available in the Accommodation Licence Agreement found within the Residents' Handbook
