Students on the Erasmus programme studying for a full year will be able to book a room in any of our available halls for the duration of their course. You will receive an email  once you hold an unconditional firm or conditional firm course offer with your login instructions for the booking system.

If your course starts at any other time during the year then please email us for details about availability and the booking process.

If you will be a student at DMU for less than a full academic year but the above criteria does not apply to you then please contact your faculty or course leader to find out if accommodation arrangements have been made. You will need to be a full time enrolled DMU student for the duration of your stay to be eligible for accommodation in halls of residence.

Clearing and late applicants

If you are applying through clearing and there is still availability in university sourced accommodation you will be sent an email with your login details once you have an unconditional firm offer.

If you have a room booked prior to receiving your results and do not get the grades required your room will be cancelled, unless you also have an insurance choice with DMU. In this situation you will be refunded the £200 advance rent payment. If you then successfully obtain a place through clearing you will be able to log back into the booking system and book a new room, subject to availability. Please note you will need to repay the booking fee.

If you have any queries about availability please contact the Accommodation Office who will be happy to advise you.


If you have deferred from last year (2013/14) and you have an unconditional firm offer you will be able to log on and book your room online from March 2014. If you have applied for 2014 entry to DMU but now wish to defer your place until 2015, you cannot reserve a room in our halls, you will be asked to book your room in 2015.

Postgraduate and mature students  

If you are a mature student that meets our eligibility criteria you may book a room in halls.

Although we do not offer university-sourced rooms to postgraduate and research students, we are happy to offer advice on private rented accommodation. See our postgraduate accommodation options| for more information.

Accommodation for couples and families

All university sourced accommodation is for single persons only. The Accommodation Office can assist you and provide information about finding accommodation in the private rented sector.
