If you are a student at DMU for less than a full academic year but the above criteria does not apply to you contact your faculty or course leader to find out if accommodation arrangements have been made. 

Clearing and late applicants

If you apply through clearing and there is still availability in university-sourced accommodation you will be sent an email with your login details once you have an unconditional firm offer.

If you have a room booked prior to receiving your results and do not get the grades required your room will be cancelled. In this situation you will be refunded £200 of your booking payment. If you then successfully obtain a place through clearing you will be able to log back into the booking system and book a new room, subject to availability.

N.B. You will need to repay the booking fee.

If you also have DMU as your insurance choice please contact us and we will try to keep your original booking.

If you have any queries about availability contact the Accommodation Office.


If you have deferred from last year (2016/17) you can log on and book your room online from 6th March. If you have applied for 2017 entry to DMU but now wish to defer your place until 2018, you cannot reserve a room yet, you will need to book in 2018.
