Find out everything you need to know about your accommodation application journey.

The information on this page is for the academic year 2024-25. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our campus and halls and our residential teams – as well as our colleagues across the College – are working hard to ensure that your experience beyond the classroom is inclusive and engaging.

You will soon be able to apply for accommodation for the 2024-25 academic session. We do not allocate rooms on a first-come, first-served basis. So as long as you submit your accommodation preferences before the deadline of 19 July, as a firm offer holder, you are guaranteed a place in halls.

We urge you to look carefully at all the information provided and take time to research the halls, as once you have made your decision and submitted your application it cannot be amended.

Outlined below are the dates in the accommodation application process. Keep an eye on our website and social media channels for updates.

Your accommodation application journey

Applicants who have firmly accepted an academic offer (regardless of whether you have a conditional offer or an unconditional offer) from Imperial will receive an email invite to apply for accommodation using our online system - Accommodation Hub (AccHub). You can select your accommodation preferences specifying your preferred hall, room type and price. 

  • Your preferences are EQUALLY ranked, and cannot be distinguished in order of highest to lowest preference.
  • You can only choose one single room and one twin room per hall
  • Once the form is submitted, you cannot make any changes to it. Ensure you are happy with your preferences before submitting the application.
  • Although we can guarantee you a bed space we are unfortunately not able to guarantee one of your preferences. We do, however, endeavour to try and match you with one of your preferences as best we can.

You must apply no later than 19 July 2024 to be guaranteed a place* in our accommodation. Once you've applied, you will get an acknowledgement email to confirm that your application has been received.

* As an undergraduate student you are guaranteed a place in Imperial College London accommodation for your first year of study if you meet the terms and conditions of the Accommodation guarantee.

If you have made Imperial your Insurance choice, you will be emailed the ‘Invitation to Apply for Accommodation' from Monday 22 July 2024. Unfortunately you are not guaranteed accommodation. However, if we can't offer you a place in one of our halls of residence, we'll provide you with advice and guidance on how to find accommodation in the private sector.

All applications will be processed and rooms allocated.

Those who have an unconditional academic offer will receive an accommodation offer in early September.

When you receive your accommodation offer, you'll also receive your 'Licence to Occupy' which states your hall and room type. Please note that a room number will not be included in the Licence as this will be provided on your first invoice.

Candidates who have secured a place in university accommodation will be notified of their offer by email. Offers must be accepted by the date specified in the email.

What happens if I don't want to accept the accommodation I have been offered?"


If you do not wish to accept the offer, you will be able to reject this online. You will be asked to provide a reason for your decision. This will enable us to reallocate the room. We regret that this is the only offer we can make and if you reject it, it is unlikely that we will be able to make an alternative offer. 

Accommodation e-induction 

You will receive an email inviting you to complete an e-induction before you arrive. The induction contains all the useful information about your halls, move in arrangements, what to pack and much more.

Arrivals day is 28 September – prepare for a warm welcome to your new home!
