Our Commitment To You
Coventry is well served with suitable student accommodation within the City, with a range of University-owned and managed accommodation, and privately rented houses and flats.
If you are an undergraduate or postgraduate student:
- We will endeavour to offer University-owned, managed or approved accommodation, provided you have submitted an online application (subject to availability).
- We will offer University-owned or managed accommodation, to all full-time (for all years) students demonstrating compassionate circumstances, providing the above conditions are satisfied.
- We will accommodate all students who wish to remain or return to University accommodation on a first come first served basis (subject to availability). Details will be made available on the student portal during the spring term.
- We will ensure that you are treated fairly and with respect. We endeavour to meet your accommodation needs in a timely and effective manner.
Student Accommodation allocates rooms within our accommodation on a first come first served basis (subject to availability). Allocation to rooms and properties will only be made once your academic place has been confirmed, which is generally when your academic conditions have been met. The allocated room/property is the best available on the day of allocation. Students are allocated into properties and areas with people that are at different stages of their degree. On application, students will be requested to either select their preferred property type i.e. catered or self-catered en suite or by property choice i.e. Priory Hall, Singer Hall etc.
If you accept an offer of a room in University accommodation, you will be required to agree to the terms and conditions of the ‘Licence to Occupy’ (contract) online. This is a legally binding agreement and you will be required to tick the box to agree to the contract. Prior to you agreeing, you can view the ‘Licence to Occupy’ on the Student Accommodation website; please read it carefully and do not accept the accommodation unless you are prepared to agree to the conditions. Once you accept the offer, you are liable for the rent and occupancy of the room for the full contract period.
Please note: Academic courses do not coincide with the accommodation contract dates. If you accept an offer of accommodation, but the course finishes before the stated end date of your accommodation contract, you will remain liable for the associated costs as agreed at the time of acceptance. This is as per the Licence to Occupy, which forms part of the residence agreement.
