When can I apply for accommodation?
If you choose NTU as your first choice you’ll be sent your NTU ID number from mid-February 2013 onwards. You will need this to access the online booking system.
If you hold an unconditional offer you will get priority booking for 12 days from Monday 25 February to Friday 8 March 2013.
The booking system will open for all students, including conditional offer holders, from Monday 18 March 2013.
What is my NTU ID number and how do I get it?
This is your student ID number which you will keep throughout your time at NTU. It will be eight characters and start with N, for example N1234567. Once you have accepted your offer we will send you an email including you NTU ID. Check your inbox and spam filter for the email. Due to technical difficulties, you may not have received this until very recently, so please recheck your inbox. If you definitely have not received the email, please email us with your full name, date of birth and UCAS number.
You are my insurance choice. How do I book my accommodation?
Due to the high number of applications we receive only applicants who have accepted us as their first choice of university (your firm acceptance choice) can apply for accommodation. If we are your insurance choice and your offer is confirmed after your results are declared we will contact you to arrange suitable accommodation.

Is accommodation allocated to students according to their course?
We do not specify which residences students on particular courses are allowed to book. However it is advisable to select a residence that is recommended for your campus.
Can I choose where I will be living?
Yes, our online booking system allows you to book your exact room. This means that you not only select your residence, but you also get to see where your room is located within your flat, which block it is in and what floor its on.
Will I have to vacate my room during the Easter and Christmas holidays?
No, University contracts are for either 44 weeks or 51 weeks and cover the whole academic year.
Is free travel provided for students that do not live near the City site or Clifton campus?
Free NCT travel passes are provided in some NTU residences. Please check the details of residences that are outside the city centre to see if a free travel pass is included. Most residences that are outside the city centre are close to public transport links.
Will I get my first choice of accommodation?
We recommend that you apply as early as possible to increase the chance of securing the residence that you would like. It is advisable to view the details of several residences so that you can book alternative residences if your first choice is fully booked.
Will I have to share accommodation?
The majority of our residences offer single bedrooms. However there are a few twin-bedded rooms available at some residences. We do not have any double rooms.
Is accommodation provided for families?
All University accommodation is designed for single people. If you need family accommodation we can give you advice and information on renting in the private sector.
What if I have a disability or need an accessible room?
If you have a disability, or need special consideration because of a medical condition or exceptional circumstances, we can help. We offer a number of accessible rooms with features to assist a range of requirements.
If you are a disabled student who requires personal full-time assistance, we can also offer residential accommodation for your helper. We may ask you for supporting information from your doctor before allocating you an accessible room.
Can I smoke in my room?
Smoking in public places has been illegal since 1 July 2007 and is strictly forbidden in all University residences.
Is there a cleaner?
You're responsible for keeping your own bedroom clean, but in most halls communal areas are cleaned by housekeeping staff.
Can I bring my car?
Limited parking is available at some University residences (by purchased permit). Parking at city centre residences is not available. Nottingham has an excellent bus and tram system with students able to take advantage of discounted fares.
What will I need to bring?
Our accommodation is well equipped, but you'll need to bring your own cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery, bedding and towels. If you bring a TV for your room, you'll need to buy a TV licence.
