Can I change my accommodation?

We can only consider room moves within Student Village and Corbishley Hall. (Remember - you will have signed a legally binding contract specifically for your room for a fixed period).

Can I change my preferences?

It may not be possible to change your preferences as your accommodation may already have been allocated. If it has not yet been allocated, we will try to do this. Please contact us with your name and your new preferences.

We will try to meet these changed preferences but it may not always be possible to do so. We also need written confirmation from you. This can be emailed to accommodation@glyndwr.ac.uk

What if I don't hear from you?

If you have not received a contract and you are concerned about your accommodation, please do not hesitate to contact us by: -

Telephone 01978 293344
Email: accommodation@glyndwr.ac.uk

Is it a problem if I am on holiday in September?

If you will be away from home for more than a week during early September, please access your email upon your return to check for your contract.

We will only hold open an offer of accommodation for 14 days (longer if you do not live in the UK). If you have not replied, we will assume that you do not want the offer and give the room to another student.

Can I be moved to on-campus accommodation?

Some of the accommodation is not on campus and you may decide that you want to be moved into on-campus accommodation. It may not be possible to move you straight away as there may not be any on-campus vacancies, but you must inform the Residential and Campus Life team that you would like to move (and your reasons for wanting to move). You will then be put on a waiting list for the accommodation of your choice.

You will be informed as soon as a room becomes available.

Can I bring my family to stay??

Unfortunately, our halls of residence do not include any accommodation that is suitable for families, couples or student parents. The accommodation team may be able to help with finding alternative local accommodation.
