The following groups of students are not guaranteed accommodation:

- Returning Postgraduate students
- Research only students
- Students starting a postgraduate course where the start date is later than 02 October 2017
While there is no guarantee for the above student types, you may still submit an application. Those who apply for a room will be kept updated via email.
Please note that we are unable to offer accommodation to part time students.
Your guarantee is for a room in University residences (or accommodation otherwise managed by the University), not for a room of a particular type, or necessarily a single room. This means that we cannot guarantee that you will be allocated your preferred residence or type of room, but we promise to do our best. If we do not have enough single rooms to meet demand, you may be offered a twin room to share with another student of the same gender as a temporary measure. Usually, as the term progresses, we are able to offer all guaranteed students a single room of their own.
If you have any queries relating to the UEA Room Guarantee please contact us.
