Returning students – Bath Spa University

Applications are currently closed

Applications are now closed for returning students interested in 2024/25 accommodation within our halls of residence.

If you are still searching for accommodation, see our Private Sector page for support.

You can also contact our staff and we can help you with a wealth of resources, links, and alternative options to aid you with your search.

If the Accommodation team are able to offer rooms to returning students again, this page will be updated.

Important information

Rooms at the Newton Park campus and Bankside House are not available to returning students who register their interest via our application form. Only a limited number of rooms have been made available at Waterside Court, Charlton Court and Twerton Mill.

Waterside Court and Charlton Court are managed by Unite Students and Twerton Mill is managed by iQ Student Accommodation. All the rooms available to returning students are part of shared flats with other students, except studios, which are self-contained individual apartments.

All offers are subject to availability and a £250 prepayment of the licence fee is required to confirm the booking with Unite Students or iQ Student Accommodation. This prepayment is not a deposit and is typically taken off your first rent payment.

Your application is with us at Bath Spa University but please be aware that contracts and payments are with Unite Students and iQ directly, depending on the location. Once you've signed their tenancy agreement, you're liable for the full length of the agreed-upon stay in their halls and their terms and conditions.

Tenancy agreements are set to run between 21 September 2024 and 26 July 2025. Accommodation is not available before and after these dates.

Returning students are not able to apply if they:

  • Aren't studying at one of the Bath-based campuses
  • Have outstanding debt with the University, Unite Students or iQ Student Accommodation
  • Have disciplinary or misconduct history with the University, Unite Students or iQ Student Accommodation.

Availability of rooms is limited, so if we're unable to offer your preferred selection, you may receive an alternative offer for a different room type and/or location. Completing the registration of interest form doesn't guarantee you an offer of accommodation, and once we've filled all our available rooms, applications will be closed.
