Please do not reserve a UNITE hall unless you intend to take up the accommodation irrespective of the outcome of your scholarship application. Newarke Point would normally require a guarantor. If you are not able to provide a guarantor, please consider instead reserving a place in Bede or New Wharf. This place can then be released if your scholarship application is successful.
