How to apply for halls

Guaranteed place for first year students

We guarantee a place in halls for all full-time UK, EU and international undergraduate and postgraduate students joining us for their first year of study in 2019. This guarantee is for UK students who confirm their offer and apply for accommodation before 30 June 2019, and EU/international students who confirm their offer and apply for accommodation before 12 August 2019.

Places in Middlesex's own halls are allocated on a first-come first-served basis. The university also works with a number of private providers to ensure there are places available once our own halls are fully occupied.

Our halls are all managed by Optivo, a housing association that specialises in student accommodation. We're committed to providing a friendly, safe, student-focused environment – and we've signed up to national codes of standards for accommodation to ensure this.
