Why not take the time to  research where you might like to live if your offers get accepted. You might feel it’s too soon, but it’s always good to know what your options are.

And when it comes to reserving your accommodation, being an early bird can have its benefits. The earlier you book, the more likely you are to snap up your preferred room type and accommodation building; rather than being left with a lack of choice and having to settle for second best.

If you book your student accommodation with Host today, you’ll benefit from the knowledge in knowing if you don’t get your offer accepted or the grades needed, you can cancel your booking and wont have to pay a penny.
That’s our No Play No Pay promise.
