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 a 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). Once you've accepted your offer, please note that it can take up to 48 hours before you can apply on our accommodation system.

2. Register for an account
Next, you must create an account on our online system. Make sure you have your student reference number to hand — it will be eight digits long, start with 33, and be printed on your offer letter. Once you’ve registered, you will receive a verification email containing a validation code and a link to verify 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 from the previous step, and select several accommodation options in order of preference. To help you decide, read our halls pages to find out more about the types of room available. Once you have submitted your application, you’ll receive an email confirming this. You can log back into 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. Once your application has been submitted, it will show as “awaiting verification” until we can make you an offer of accommodation.

Most undergraduate students will receive their offer a few days after A-level results are announced. If you have an unconditional firm offer, you may receive your accommodation offer before this. We aim to start sending offers to successful applicants in late May.

Postgraduate students with unconditional firm offers of study will start getting their accommodation offers from late May. After this, we’ll contact students when their offer of study changes from conditional firm to unconditional firm.

When can I move into halls?

Our undergraduate and postgraduate contracts for 2019/20 accommodation start Friday 20 September 2019. You will be able to book a check-in slot over that weekend.

Once you’ve received an offer

If we have allocated you 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 pre-payment or deposit. The pre-payment is £100 and will go towards your first rent instalment. It applies to all halls except those in the Goldsmiths Student Village, where a security deposit of £200 is due.

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.
