The University encourages first year students to apply for accommodation owned and managed by Queen's.
For private sector accommodation, the University recommends 'SU Lets'.
SU Lets is the ethical lettings agency, which the Students' Union runs in association with local estate agent Morton Pinpoint. It provides high-quality accommodation from good landlords. It is the only place that the Students' Union and the University recommend to students for housing in the private rental sector. The properties on offer have to meet a high-quality 'Accommodation Code' decided by the Union. Simple and fair tenancy agreements are provided and deposits are protected. The SU Lets office is in the Students' Union foyer. For further information please visit www.sulets.net
Advice is available in the Students' Union regarding all aspects of renting accommodation in the private sector www.qubsu.org/advice.asp
The University's residential year commences on Saturday 21 September 2013. If you are commencing your Nursing or Midwifery course in September 2013 teaching will begin before this date with the School's inductions taking place from early September 2013. If you intend to check-in early to meet these dates then you may not initially be able to gain access to the particular room that you have been allocated for the term of your contract. Should that be the case as alternative room will be provided until your allocated room becomes available. If arriving early you will be required to pay for any additional nights.
If your final offer is for the February/March 2014 intake, you can apply for accommodation between 1-30 November 2013.
*Please note that students who have already completed either their first year of an undergraduate degree at Queen’s University or are returning to complete a second undergraduate or postgraduate degree are classed as ‘returning students' and not as students in their first year of study. For information regarding returning students please see the Returning Students section.
