How we allocate rooms



We will not be able to allocate any student a hall of residence place without receipt of a completed online 'Halls Application' Form. Priority for campus accommodation is given to first year undergraduate students. 

Please note that all offers will be made via email. You must ensure that we have your up to date email address to enable us to process your application.

Allocations are made in three phases: 

The first phase of allocations commences mid July - this is for non local students who applyearly and hold unconditional offers. Unconditional non local students who apply after​ April will be placed in the second phase of allocations:

The second phase of allocations commences after A level results in August and continues through to the start of term. We can only make offers to non local students who have received an unconditional offer of an academic place at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

The third phase of allocations commences once we have accommodated all non local students. Local students will       then be allocated on a date of application and distance from Cardiff basis. 

Local students are those who live in the following Local Authority areas:

Merthyr Tydfil
Vale of Glamorgan
Rhondda Cynon Taff
