What is a Continuing Student and how do I know if I am one?

A Continuing Undergraduate is a student who has completed the first,second or is on a final year of their undergraduate degree.

A Continuing Postgraduate is a student who has completed the first year of their postgraduate degree, such as a MA/MSc or PhD.

All students must be fully enrolled/registered on a full-time course. If you move into a hall and your 'student status' changes we may ask you to vacate the property. If for example you book a room and subsequently do not progress further in your course because you have to re-sit exams or you are at a writing up stage of your course or not required to attend lectures you will be asked to vacate the hall. All City University of London affiliated halls are licenced for full-time student who attend lectures during the contract period.

Can I apply for a place in City's Halls of Residence? What Halls would I be eligible for?

Yes, you can apply for a room in Alliance House. The Hall has its own page with more details on the Hall, its facilities, contract lengths and prices, as well as photos of the buildings and rooms. You will not be eligible to apply for accommodation at any other nominated halls.

What is the deadline for applications?

The deadline for applications for continuing student applications is Midnight on TBC.

How do you allocate these rooms?

Priority will be given to students with a disability or severe medical condition; please refer to the below section on medical conditions for further information.

Following this, rooms will be allocated strictly on a first come first served basis. If you are applying to stay with friends, this information will be passed onto Alliance House who will do their best to facilitate this subject to room availability. Please note City does not handle the booking process or room allocation, this is solely done by the staff at Alliance House. If you have any questions concerning your room allocation please contact Alliance House once you have completed your reservation.

You will be nominated by City for a single en-suite room on a 41 week contract, if you wish to be considered for any other types of room please be aware these rooms are on a longer contract consisting of 51 weeks with no option to terminate early without a like for like replacement or reduce the length of the contract. If would like to be offered a different type of room or wish to apply as a group  please email us with your request.

I have a disability or serious medical condition that affects my accommodation requirements; will this be taken into consideration?

Yes, we aim to give priority to students with a disability or severe medical condition when allocating rooms to continuing students.

The application form asks you to please disclose any medical conditions that you would like us to consider in our allocations. You will then need to provide medical evidence of this to us at Please state in your email that you consent for us to share this information with the Disability Co-ordinators in City's Learning Success team so that they can assess your situation.

How will accommodation offers be sent out?

Accommodation offers for all students are sent out in rounds on specific days. When you receive an offer, you will be notified of the deadline to accept the offer. All offers for all students will be sent by email. For that reason, it's important to check your junk and spam folders in case any messages are misdirected due to inbox filters.

The first round of continuing students accommodation offers will commence from around TBC (exact date to be confirmed shortly on this page). Rooms are allocated on a first come first served basis.

You are encouraged to check the deposit or reservation fees required for Alliance House, so that you will be prepared to book a room when receiving an offer.

What if I am not successful in my application?

All continuing student applicants who are unsuccessful in securing a room will be placed on a waiting list to be considered for any future vacancies that may arise after September. You will be contacted by an Accommodation Co-ordinator if rooms become available at Alliance House or any other Postgraduate halls (subject to availability) after the start of the academic year.

You may also wish to look into other housing options as well.

What other housing options are open to me?

The majority of continuing students will opt for private sector housing. This could be in a private Hall of Residence, in a house or flat with friends, or in a homestay with a host family.

City University has joined with the University of London Housing Services and you now have access to the ULHS Private Housing Database for private accommodation searches and a message board system. You can use the message board to contact other students and also to look for flatmates. You will need your Student number and email address to access this database.

There are also a few rooms for continuing students via Student Homes.  Current Residents have a choice of staying on but you can contact Student Homes and they will let you know if there are any vacancies there

You also have access to ULHS Private Housing Advisors - Please see our information on Private Accommodation.
