Accommodation applications for 2018-19

The deadline for all students has now passed. Students can still apply after the deadline to be added to a waiting list. We will get in touch with students on the waiting list if places become available and aim to provide regular updates, as well as advice on alternative accommodation options where needed.

Where do I apply?

Login to our application portal. Please allow around 30-60 minutes to complete your application.

The application process

If you're applying for accommodation for the first time, there are 3 steps:

1. Confirm your offer
You can only apply for halls if you have either an unconditional firm or conditional firm offer from us. You have unconditional firm status if you have accepted your place at Goldsmiths and have met all the academic requirements (eg A-level results; English language qualifications). You have conditional firm status if you have chosen Goldsmiths as your first-choice university but haven’t yet met the requirements of your offer from us (you are waiting for your A-level results).

2. Register for an account
Next, you’ll need to create an account on our online system. Make sure you have your student reference number to hand – it will be printed on your offer letter. It’s 8 digits long and starts with 33. Once you’ve registered, you’ll be sent a verification email containing a validation code and a link to finalise your account. You will only need to use the validation code the first time you log into the online system.

Read our guide to registering for more information.

3. Make your application
Now you can log in to the application portal using the account details you've chosen. You’ll be asked to pick a selection of accommodation options in order of preference. To help you decide, read our halls pages to find out more about the types of room on offer. Once you have successfully submitted your application you’ll receive a confirmation email confirming receipt. You can log in to your account at any time to check the status of your application.

Read our guide to applying for more information.

When will I hear about my offer?

If you’re allocated a place in our halls of residence we’ll let you know via email.

The majority of undergraduate students will receive their offer a few days after A-level results are announced. If you're an unconditional firm applicant then you may receive your offer before this.

Postgraduate students who are unconditional firm will start getting their accommodation offers from July. After this we’ll contact students when their application status changes from conditional firm to unconditional firm.

Once you’ve received an offer

If you’ve been allocated a place, you’ll receive an email with information about how to accept your place, how to agree to the terms of the contract, and how to pay your deposit. The deposit is £200.

If you’re not allocated a place in halls, don’t worry – there are a range of alternative accommodation options, and we can assist you with finding somewhere suitable. Find out how we allocate places.
