Eligibility criteria for undergraduate students

UCL's accommodation guarantee

UCL guarantees an accommodation place for all single, first-year students studying at UCL for the first time, subject to the following conditions:

  • accommodation applications are made no later than 31 May of the year of entry;
  • students receive and firmly accept an offer of a place on a degree programme at UCL, conditional or unconditional, by 31 May of the year of entry, and;
  • students have not previously lived or studied in the London area (i.e. within the M25) as a student at a Higher Education institution.

Students meeting the above criteria, holding a conditional offer, will receive an accommodation offer after their offer status changes to unconditional.

Students holding UCL as an insurance offer

UCL cannot guarantee an accommodation place; please be prepared to find accommodation using University of London Housing Services.

Study abroad and Exchange

Full-time undergraduate students attending UCL on Junior Year Abroad (JYA), Erasmus or Exchange programmes for a full academic year are considered equivalent to first-year undergraduate students for the purposes of allocating accommodation.

Students intending to attend UCL for less than an entire academic year cannot be guaranteed an accommodation place due to the limited number of spaces available.

iBSc students
