Contracts from September to December located in Victoria Hall.


Contracts for one or two terms located in Victoria Hall.
Please contact the accommodation office to advise which dates you require.

One Term

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

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

If you are a student at DMU for less than a full academic year but the above criteria does not apply to you 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 apply 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.

N.B. You will need to repay the booking fee.

If you have any queries about availability contact the Accommodation Office.


If you have deferred from last year (2013/14) you can log on and book your room online now. If you have applied for 2014 entry to DMU but now wish to defer your place until 2015, you cannot reserve a room and will need to book again in 2015.

Accommodation for couples and families

All university sourced accommodation is for single persons only.

Contact the accommodation office for information about finding accommodation in the private rented sector.
