Guaranteed accommodation

DMU is offering guaranteed accommodation for UK first-year undergraduate students looking to start in the 2022/23 academic year.

We know that finding somewhere to live is an important part of your university journey, and you’ll want to choose somewhere that is safe, close to campus and has all the amenities to feel like home. That’s why if you choose to study at DMU, we will guarantee to secure your room either in DMU-owned halls or through one of our approved private accommodation partners, all within walking distance of our campus and Leicester city centre.

To be eligible, you must make DMU your firm choice - i.e. have a conditional firm offer or unconditional firm offer - on or before Thursday 9 June 2022, to start in the 2022/23 academic year. Once you have made DMU your firm choice, we will email you details on how to book your room when our accommodation booking system opens. Accommodation bookings need to be made by Thursday 16 June 2022, after which the guarantee offer will expire if a booking hasn’t been made by you. If you miss the accommodation booking deadlines, don’t worry - there may still be accommodation available to book later on, but it will not form as part of our ‘guarantee’ and will be subject to availability.

You can view rooms that are available on the DMU booking system on our halls page. If you decide to book a room directly through DMU, you can select your specific room as part of our personalised booking system. If there are no rooms on the DMU booking system which meet your requirements, please email our Accommodation Team ( and we will refer you to one of our private accommodation partners.

Our Accommodation Team are here to support you in the process of applying for a room, and you can get in touch with us at

There are also plenty of options for international students to secure accommodation, find out more on our international accommodation page.



Terms and conditions for UK students
