How to book accommodation

The process of booking depends on what type of accommodation and provider you need. We’ve put together some useful information on how to book NTU, UPP-managed or private accommodation.

NTU and UPP accommodation

Students in common room

Book accommodation for the 2024/25 academic year from Friday 2 February 2024.

To book you’ll need your NTU ID number, which will have been sent to you in your offer communications from us.

You must also have:

  • confirmed NTU as your first choice on UCAS Hub,
  • have accepted your offer on our applicant portal if you applied direct,
  • or be a returning NTU student.

We do not require a deposit to reserve accommodation for September 2024.

Quick steps to book

  • Explore the range of student accommodation options we have available and make a shortlist of your favourites
  • If you're a new student, you'll need to create your NTU password before you can book. Please allow 48 hours after you have accepted your offer on the UCAS Hub / NTU applicant portal to create your password
  • Log in to the NTU accommodation portal from Friday 2 February 2024 onwards and follow the instructions
  • Select ‘Accommodation booking’ and follow the steps on screen
  • Choose from the available halls, and select your room type
  • After confirming your selection, you'll be asked to sign a contract and set up a payment plan
  • You'll receive an email to confirm your booking.

If your course offer is still being processed by our Admissions team, you will be asked to complete these steps once your course place has been confirmed.

Booking private accommodation

If you are interested in private accommodation, you must book directly with that private provider. Your contract will be with the company or individual that manages that building. We recommend several private providers for purpose-built student accommodation in Nottingham, and there are lots more options. We also partner with Unipol who provide student accommodation across Nottingham.

Medical and accessible rooms

If you have a serious health issue or disability that makes it difficult for you to live in halls, please see our accessibility guide.

Students with mobility, hearing, or visual impairments, or multiple conditions should contact us before booking a room. We might be able to make adaptations and/or adjustments to help you find a room that suits your specific need.
