No. Your application for accommodation will immediately begin to be processed as soon as UCFB is informed by the academic registry at our validating partners that you have an Unconditional Firm (UF) place with UCFB.

I haven’t received information about accommodation yet. What should I do?

You should have received accommodation information by the end of April. If you are a late applicant to UCFB you may receive accommodation information at a later stage.

If you are worried because you have not received any information, please contact our Accommodation Office on 03332417333 or via email at accommodationwembley@ucfb.com.

Can I be released from my Residence Agreement to move into private student housing mid-semester or to return to live at home?

Unfortunately, this is not usually possible. You will have accepted a contractually binding Tenancy Agreement for the entire academic session, on a 44 week contract.

If my son/daughter opts to commute but partway through the first term decides they would prefer to move into accommodation, would it be too late?
