Accommodation Licence (Contract)

The lengths of our accommodation contracts (known as your ‘College accommodation licence’) for the 2024-25 academic year are:

  • 39 week licence for first year undergraduates, though you have the option to extend over the summer at some halls; and for undergraduates allocated to Evelyn Gardens
  • 51 weeks for postgraduates students at Silwood Parkthough you will have an option to take a field trip as required by your course of study

Your licence for accommodation is a legally binding agreement. Please read it carefully; if you require clarification on any point, please contact the Student Accommodation Office at

Imperial's offer of accommodation is made on condition that you have, or will have at the beginning of the accommodation period, registered as a student at Imperial College London and remain as a registered student throughout the accommodation period.

If you are residing in accommodation outside of the College portfolio, your terms and conditions will be driven by either an estate agent, landlord or private accommodation provider. It is for this reason the College highly recommends that you understand and agree to this before signing any associated contract. The Student Accommodation Office can provide guidance and support relating to any private accommodation enquiry.
