Current students with additional requirements

If you have a disability, medical condition, injury or illness that impacts on your need for accommodation whilst studying at UCL, you may be entitled to reside in UCL residences in your second and subsequent years of study.

Applications must be supported by uploading medical evidence such as a medical certificate or doctor’s letter dated no earlier than one month prior to your online application. No guarantee can be offered that you will be allocated to the same study bedroom that you occupied in your first year; however, in cases where physical adaptations to the accommodation render this the most suitable for the current resident, every effort will be made to ensure that this accommodation is retained for that student.

Application procedure

1. Applicants must be a continuing, full-time student at UCL;

2. Applications, which will be made online from February 2014, must be received by 31 May;

3. Applications must be supported by uploading appropriate evidence of the applicant’s particular need. Such supporting evidence must not be dated more than one month prior to the date of application. Supporting evidence includes letters from registered medical practitioners or confirmation of a disability from UCL Disability Services.

Applications from returning students with additional needs will be considered on their individual merits by the Accommodation Medical Appeals Committee in June and successful applicants will be notified within one week of the Committee’s decision.  Successful applicants will receive their allocation offer in July. In line with the allocation offer procedure for all students, offers must be accepted online and a deposit paid within three days of the date of the offer email.

Applicants receiving a diagnosis after the application deadline may still apply for accommodation and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. However as room allocations will have been made for the coming session, no guarantees of an offer of accommodation can be made.
