Other accommodation options
Lodgings Residential Allocations holds a lodgings list of rooms available in homes with landladies/landlords in close proximity to the University. Most accommodation should be warm, clean and comfortable, but you should be prepared to accept a more basic standard than you might be used to at home. Lodgings arrangements can be for 5 or 7 days a week, and can include meals or provide only for use of the kitchen. Please indicate your preferences on the accommodation application form. Copies of the lodgings list are available by ringing 01707 284800.
Private rented accommodation There are numerous local estate agents providing student lettings in the locality. Residential Allocations produce a booklet Student Guide to an easier life in Private Renting which is available by ringing 01707 284800.

(1) Priority order of allocation
(a) First year full-time UK, EU and North American exchange students (undergraduate, taught and research postgraduate students)
University accommodation (encompassing Ridgeview Lodge, Royal Vet College and Private Property managed by the University), within the Hatfield and London Colney areas may be offered to full-time UK, EU undergraduate and postgraduate students (taught and research) and North American exchange students in their first year of study at the University of Hertfordshire on condition that an on line accommodation application has been recorded and acknowledged on or before the date of the publication of A level results and that their acceptances of unconditional offers of places at the University have been recorded by the University Admissions Service on or before 31 August. This applies only to students who are in their first year of study at University of Hertfordshire studying for the whole academic session (Semester A and Semester B).
The University does not guarantee to house any student on or near the campus where he or she normally studies.
Once these students have been accommodated, the next priorities (for non-international students) are:
(b) First year, full-time UK, EU undergraduate and North American exchange students whose applications are received after the date of publication of A level results (ie whose applications are not made prior to clearing).

A full copy of the University’s Accommodation Allocation Policy is available on request.
Please note that students studying in the School of Humanities and Education or Business School are not given priority for rooms at the de Havilland Campus. All students are asked to denote preference for site/ cost/ type of accommodation when making an on line application for accommodation and these will be taken into account as far as possible depending on availability at the time of allocation of accommodation.
