Guaranteed accommodation for Clearing applicants in 2018


We know how important it is for you to know where you'll live while at university. We're here to help you find your accommodation whilst studying with us.

If you are applying to the university and submitting your accommodation application after 20 August, don't worry, we’ll still help you find accommodation in Canterbury. 

Apply online to find accommodation

If you're looking for accommodation, don't worry, we can help! Last year we offered all applicants, even those who applied throughout late September and October, either a university room or we helped them find a room in Canterbury. If you require assistance to find a room in Canterbury, please email us at


We'll allocate you a room within a day. You will receive your accommodation offer by email.

To accept your accommodation offer, you will need to:

  • Accept your offer and agree to the accommodation licence (contract) using the accommodation portal before your deadline date.


  • Pay the £250 pre-payment fee online during the acceptance process and set up a payment plan for 3 instalments to be paid in September, January and May - giving email contact details of a guarantor for your booking.


  • Pay all accommodation fees in full* before the start of the first term.

After you have done this, you'll receive an online induction and your check-in details.

*If you pay your full accommodation fees for the whole year before the start of the first term in September, or within 14 days of arrival, we will give you a £250 bonus for Catering and Food Court Services which will be added to your student card and split into 3 instalments across the year.

We have both en-suite bedrooms and bedrooms where you share a bathroom with other students.

If we offer you a room with a shared bathroom, we advise that you accept the offer. You can contact us nearer your move in day to see if a room change is possible or to be added to a waiting list for an en-suite room. 

Visit our accommodation pages to view the accommodation available. 

We will also have a sample Show Room available to view at the Clearing Open Day.
