Our allocation policy explains how we allocate rooms in halls and which groups of students get priority or are guaranteed accommodation. The key information is summarised below.
All the deadlines and dates of our allocations are published on our how to apply webpage.
We can only allocate accommodation to applicants after their place at Oxford Brookes has been confirmed by our admissions team, ie once they are holding an unconditional course offer.
Firm choice applicants will be offered a room in one of their five hall choices as long as they apply by the deadline and meet the academic requirements of their offer by the allocation date. We cannot guarantee that students will receive their first choice hall as this will not always be possible because of demand.
Insurance choice students are guaranteed accommodation as long as they apply by the deadline and meet the academic requirements of their offer by the allocation date. If possible, we will offer insurance choice students a room in one of their preferred halls choice. However this cannot be guaranteed and they may be offered a room in another hall.
When possible we will offer accommodation to applicants who come via clearing. However, we cannot guarantee accommodation due to availability and applicants should be prepared for the possibility that they will not secure a place in halls.
The following applicants will be given priority and guaranteed accommodation.
Students over the age of 21 are classes as mature students and have the opportunity to live with postgraduate students or with other undergraduate students.
