  • Students starting an Undergraduate course who have lived in UEA accommodation during a previous wholly or partially completed Undergraduate course (not including pre-sessional English courses)
  • Students who have lived in UEA accommodation during their UEA foundation year

The guarantee The guarantee

Your guarantee is for a room in University residences, in accommodation otherwise managed by the University or by one of UEA’s partner organisations. The guarantee is 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.
