Can students find University accommodation during Clearing?

We allocate on a first applied, first allocated basis so it is recommended to get your application in early. All accommodation is University owned, managed or approved, either on or off campus. We also have brand new self-contained studio flats near the University. You can view all of our accommodation options on our website.

As soon as students have received confirmation from UCAS of your place to study at Winchester you can apply for your university accommodation by submitting a housing application online.

To complete their online housing application, they will need their Student ID Number (Winchester Reference Number). Students will need to call us on +44 (0)1962 827234 and we will give this over the phone immediately. We will also provide it in the Study Offer Letter posted to students. 

What are Clearing Advice days?

There are two Clearing Advice days on Friday 16 August and Monday 19 August.

Clearing Advice days are not obligatory but are recommended. Students will have the chance to talk to Advice staff from the Admissions team as well as Academics. There will also be the opportunity to join a Campus Tour to explore our campus and faclities.

Campus Tours are also available.
