How to apply for accommodation

Use the same form to apply for both Joseph Stones House and One Mill Street.

Only submit the form once. You will receive an automated confirmation email when your form has been submitted.

Please allow approximately 4-6 weeks for your online form to be processed. We will contact you if we have any queries about your form.

An accommodation start-up fund worth £100 is available to applicants who have been receiving benefits or are estranged from their family. For more information and to make an application for funding from the scheme, please complete the application on our Scholarships & Bursaries page.

What if my application is unsuccessful?

If you apply for a room and Joseph Stones House is full, we will keep a small waiting list in case of vacancies at the last minute.

Usually there are no more than a few withdrawals, so most people will be better booking other places if they haven’t got a room. We have a list of alternative accommodation you can look into.

Please get in touch if you need advice on which accommodation would suit you best.

When can I move in?

Your accommodation contract will have a start date. You will be able to move in at any time from that date onwards.

How to cancel accommodation

Contact the accommodation team as soon as you can, and before the end of August – accommodation@leedsconservatoire.ac.uk 

Please note:
Should you choose not to come to Leeds Conservatoire and the reason is neither a serious personal issue nor failure to get your grades, then you may be tied in to paying your tenancy for the full year if your room cannot be reallocated. 

Should serious personal reasons prevent you from taking up your place please contact us for advice. 

Please read carefully the terms of the Unite Students Cancellation Policy which you can access alongside your tenancy documents.
