Students starting in January
We have a limited amount of rooms available for students who require accommodation from January. In order to be able to book accommodation for a shorter contract you must meet the eligibility criteria. If you will be an enrolled DMU student starting in January and are unsure if you are eligible for student accommodation then please contact us or your faculty for further details.
As you will not be able to book online, we ask that you email us from October to register your interest in a room. Starting in November the Accommodation Office will then contact you to advise you of which halls of residence is available to you and to inform you of what will be required of you prior to moving in, such as payments due etc. We will then begin to book rooms on a first come first served basis.
Where possible we will allocate January starting students in flats together so that you will be living with people who will also be new to the university. There will be a range of contract dates available to students starting in January and we will choose the one most suitable for your requirements. For students studying for only one term contracts will be for a minimum of 10 weeks and for those studying until the end of the academic year contracts will end between June and July depending on which hall of residence you are allocated to.
Once a room has been booked, you will then receive an email with instructions to confirm your booking, this will involve logging onto the online system to accept the booking terms and conditions and making a booking fee payment of £250 (£50 of which is a non refundable admin fee and £200 is an advance rental payment or damage deposit.
You will also be required to enter a contract with the hall of residence that you have been allocated, which may involve signing a contract, paying a damage deposit, making an initial rent installment or paying the full rental amount due, this will depend upon the hall that you have been allocated to and full details will be communicated to you when your booking is made.
