BU guarantees accommodation to new undergraduate students who select BU as their firm choice and have submitted their UCAS application by the specified deadlines, and all postgraduate students who hold an unconditional offer and reserve their accommodation by specified deadlines. Please check our terms and conditions for full details of our accommodation guarantee.
Students who select BU as their insurance choice or apply through Clearing can book any remaining rooms when they confirm they are coming to BU and have an unconditional firm 'UF' status. However, we cannot guarantee these students a room in BU accommodation and they may have to find private accommodation. This can be arranged through LettingsBU, our own student letting service, or privately. You can find further details about this on our accommodation webpages.
