University of Buckingham Accommodation
Apply for Accommodation
Room offers are made in the order that applications are received, with priority going to those students who are new to the University. If you have confirmed your place at Buckingham you should apply now.
Please make sure that you have read and understood our terms and conditions before you apply for and accept a place in University accommodation. Click here for our terms and conditions. You will be entering into a legally binding contract for which there is no opt-out clause. Unless there are serious extenuating circumstances, you will be financially liable for the whole duration of your contract.
All new accommodation contracts are for a minimum of 4 terms (3 terms if you are a Medical School student).
We do not ask for an accommodation deposit when you apply for accommodation initially. In order to confirm your room booking you are required to pay for the first term within 10 days of being made your room offer (this may be before you receive your Student Loan.)
If you are joining us in July 2017 you may apply now. Room offers will be made week commencing 15 May 2017. Click here to apply.
If you are joining us in September 2017 you may apply now. Room offers will be made week commencing 21 August 2017.

Please note – the accommodation fees will be subject to a price increase in January 2018. If you have already applied for your accommodation we would advise you to check the 2018 prices carefully to ensure your preferences are still within your budget. Please contact the Accommodation Office if you would like to change your preferences.
Please contact the Accommodation Office if you have any questions. Contact us.
Living On Campus
Students are required to live in or around Buckingham during term time and, unlike some universities, we are able to guarantee accommodation for all new students for their first four terms of study (providing you have booked and paid for your accommodation within the required timescale). Our safe and beautiful university is small enough for everything to be within walking distance. Study & lecture rooms, the library, computers, social facilities and accommodation are all just a short walk from each other.
Living Off Campus
Buckingham town and the surrounding villages provide a range of accommodation, from cosy cottages to modern flats. Please make sure you organise your accommodation before you arrive at the University as we don’t, unfortunately, have rooms for temporary stays while you look for private accommodation.
We can help you by supplying:
- a list of letting agencies (downloadable PDF file)
- advice on housing agreements (more information)
- details of temporary bed & breakfast accommodation
- details about Council Tax
- house hunting checklist (downloadable PDF file)
Please contact us for further details on any of the above.
Special Accommodation Requirements
A small number of ground floor rooms have wheelchair access and are close to specially constructed shower/WC facilities.
As all the halls of residence are designed for mixed occupancy, female-only accommodation is limited and, we regret, cannot be guaranteed.
If you have a medical condition which will affect your room needs, please speak to the Accommodation Office for advice as you may need a medical certificate or other evidence to support your request.
Other special needs
If you have any other concerns, such as matters relating to your religion, please don’t hesitate to contact us at the Accommodation Office for advice.
Accommodation Price List
Accommodation charges are based on weekly rates. Fees will be due by the first day of each term, as detailed on your invoice and on your accommodation licence. Please click here for details of termly costs if you are starting in July or September 2017.
