We are no longer accepting applications from non-guaranteed Returning Undergraduate students (students who have lived with us before or not joining UEA for their first year of study).
For further details, please refer to our accommodation guarantee.
If you are returning student and are looking for accommodation, you will need to be looking for rooms in the private sector. Homerun, the Student Union run Housing advice service, can help you with this.
If you are unsure whether you are a returning student or not, please contact us
Our accommodation application deadline for September entry is 31 July 2017. You may apply after this deadline, but you would not be guaranteed a room.
Please read the following information carefully. To proceed, please click ‘NEXT’ at the bottom of the page.
When you access the accommodation application for the first time, click on the red link labelled ‘First time user account creation’. You will be prompted to enter your UEA Applicant / Student Number (this is a 7 or 9 digit number, which you can find on your correspondence from UEA). You will also be asked for your surname, and your date of birth (which must be entered in the format: dd/mm/yyyy).
Please note that this account is only for your accommodation application. It is not the same as a MyUEA account.
Please note that you will not be able to create a user account until you have accepted an offer to study at UEA.
After confirming your personal details, you will be asked to provide a contact email address.
We strongly recommend that you use a non-Hotmail email address for your accommodation application. This is because of numerous problems which have been reported to us by previous applicants using Hotmail accounts. In some cases, these problems have led to applicants not receiving their accommodation offers, and therefore having their offers cancelled.
Please ensure that the email address you provide is for an account to which you will continue to have access until your arrival at UEA. In particular, we recommend that you do not use a school or college email account, which is likely to be closed during the summer period.
After the successful completion of your application, you will receive an email confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact us urgently.
We will use email to contact you about your application. Please add ‘email@example.com’ to your Safe Senders list or equivalent. Regularly check both your inbox and your junk mail folder for any messages from us.
Your accommodation offer will be sent via email. You will have 3 days to respond. If you do not respond within the time limit, your offer may be cancelled.
The application section titled ‘Accommodation Requirements’ includes several questions to enable us to make an appropriate accommodation allocation for your specific circumstances. The default response to these questions is ‘No’, but if you click on the answer box you can select ‘Yes’.
One of the questions in this section is ‘Do you have any illness, disability, or special requirement relevant to your accommodation needs?’ If you select ‘Yes’, a text box will appear, in which you can type details of your circumstances (for example, a dust allergy / asthma, restricted mobility) and any accommodation adaptations you require. Please note that this information may be shared confidentially with relevant staff in the Student Support Service.
