If you're a full-time first year student and you apply for accommodation, we can guarantee you a place in one of our High Wycombe halls. We will also guarantee a room to late applicants and applicants who apply to Bucks through Clearing.
We are pleased to be able to tell you about a really exciting accommodation offer for 2020/21.
We know that you may have concerns about accommodation for the next academic year, and that many of you are reticent about signing contracts with private landlords. We’ve worked with the Students’ Union to develop a new accommodation package – which they fully endorse – for all new, returning and graduating and alumni students for 2020/21. Recognising the unprecedented challenges of Covid-19, we’ve reduced all of our accommodation charges between 10-30%.
Rooms in our Covid-safe student accommodation will start at £80 per week and include:
- No deposit, flexible contract period and a public health crisis guarantee
- All utilities, free Wi-Fi and contents insurance
- 24 hr security and on-site pastoral and welfare provision
- 1/3 off University gym membership once lockdown restrictions are lifted
- Free membership of ‘The Bucks Café Club’ giving you discounts at all campus cafes which we expect to be open for at least takeaways from September
- Bedding, cleaning and welcome packs available on request
We won’t charge you a deposit, and your contract won’t start until you’re required to be on campus and take up residence. Furthermore, if there is another public health crisis which prevents you from accessing our campuses, you’ll be released from your contract at no additional cost. We will let you know when you can start applying for residential halls for the new term, but the new rents are in the table below:
|Hall||Weekly Rent||Annual Rent|
(20/09/20 - 11/07/21)
|Brook Street Halls - Standard||£80.00||£3,360.00|
|Brook Street Halls - Studio||£150.00||£6,300.00|
|Hughenden Park Student Village - Ensuite||£130.00||£5,460.00|

How to apply
Applications haven’t opened yet, as we’ve delayed this year’s process to allow us to make sure we have the best possible accommodation offer available for our students to support them.
If you are a new applicant to the university, we will contact you automatically when applications open as long as you have accepted the offer from Bucks as your first choice. Make sure UCAS have your correct email address, as that’s the one we’ll use for new applicants. Once applications open, these emails will be sent out regularly, but please note, the process can take up to 5 working days.
If you are an existing student and existing halls resident, we will contact you automatically by email, based on the information you’ve given us. If you are an existing student not in halls this year, then you can email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll make sure you get an email when we do open for applications. We will also update this webpage and advertise it on our Accommodation Facebook page and University social media pages.
Everything is done by email and online. Simply follow the link we send and then the on screen instructions to complete your application.
