How to Book NTU Accommodation

The process of booking your accommodation depends on what type of accommodation you need. You can find all you need to know on this page.

Book NTU accommodation

Booking your accommodation is a big step. To help you understand the process and find a place that’s right for you, we’ve put together this guide.

These steps apply for undergraduates, postgraduates and mature students booking accommodation in NTU halls of residence, flats and studios.

Students moving in


  • To book NTU accommodation you will need to make us your firm - first choice on UCAS Track, or accept your offer on our applicant portal if you applied directly.
  • You should spend some time looking through our accommodation options. Work out what your budget is, the best location for you to get where you need to be, and anything else that may be important for your living space. If you need any help or advice on choosing where to live, check out our guides to NTU accommodation and private accommodation.
  • It's a good idea to pick out a few different options, including private providers for City Campus accommodation, as our most popular residences get booked up quickly. Private providers do not require a password to book.

  • You'll then need your NTU ID number to log into the accommodation booking system. After making NTU your first choice, it can take two working days for your NTU ID to be generated - you'll need this to book NTU accommodation. Don’t leave this step to the last minute if you want the best chance of securing your preferred accommodation.
  • When you have your NTU ID, enter it on the My Password page and you'll be prompted to create your own password which will allow you to start the booking process.

Booking online

When you’re ready to book, choose the residence, flat and room you would like using our online booking system.

We are now accepting applications from new student with a firm offer to study at NTU in 2021/22.

When you're happy with your choice, check all the details and click 'Pay'. You will be required to pay a £200 refundable damage deposit at this stage. After this step:

  • conditional offer holders won't need to do anything else at this stage. You will receive an email when your offer has been updated to complete this step.
  • unconditional offer holders will need to set up a payment plan and confirm which bank account you plan to use to pay your accommodation fees.

Get ready to move in!

Congratulations! We look forward to welcoming you to your new home from home.

In the meantime, you can meet some of your new housemates on our message boards and on our Halls of Residence Facebook pages.

It’s a good time to start thinking about what you need to bring with you. You can find more information in your Residence Handbook, but we’d recommend bringing:

  • pots and pans
  • crockery and cutlery
  • cooking utensils
  • duvet, pillows and bedding
  • home comforts

You can move into your accommodation from September. We will send you detailed arrival information by email when you complete your booking, and you'll find it on our accommodation welcome site in the weeks before your arrival.

Our online accommodation system is now open. Book your accommodation.

Book private halls through NTU

You must have NTU as your firm - first choice on UCAS Track in order to request accommodation with these private providers. If NTU is your insurance choice, you are not eligible to request accommodation at this stage.

The accommodation providers we are working with for 2021/22 are:
