Applying for accommodation


If you are interested in applying to live in our accommodation, you will need to complete and return an accommodation expression of interest form. Once received by the Residential Team, you will be invited to attend an interview. Accommodation interviews can take place on the same day as you course interview should you wish. If you later decide you are no longer interested or do not require accommodation you must let us know by contacting the Residential Team.


In the Summer term, from the end of April, you will be contacted via email to inform you if you have been successful at interview. You will then be invited to pay a £175 deposit to secure a room. The deposit needs to be paid by the closing date specified in your confirmation email.

Should you require financial support towards accommodation fees, bursary information and application forms can be obtained from the Student Support Team on 01278 655126 or 01278 441233 or by emailing studentsupport@btc.ac.uk.


During the Summer term, once your deposit has been paid, you will be emailed a residential contract and associated paperwork. The information supplied will contain everything you need to know in order to move into your room in September. Places are allocated in order of priority, therefore students applying to study a land-based, Higher Education or specialist course, or living outside of a 30 mile radius of the University Centre will gain precedence.


All students living in residential accommodation are required to sign a contract and abide by all rules and the Residential Code of Conduct.
