We have a significant number of places available for Clearing applicants.

You can apply for a place by entering an online ballot, with available accommodation allocated randomly.

The ballot includes all applicants who submit their online housing application by Wednesday 21 August (midnight BST). To make sure things run smoothly, you can’t submit the housing application until you’ve accepted a place to study at Queen Mary – what’s known as an unconditional firm (UF) offer. Once you’ve accepted your offer and it’s confirmed on UCAS, the Admissions Office will send you login details to the online housing application system.

It’s possible there may be a few hours delay between receiving your login details and being able to apply for housing, so if you’re applying close to the deadlines, bear this in mind. If you’re having trouble with a significant delay, please email residences@qmul.ac.uk

Important Dates

If you want to enter the ballot, it’s important you accept your offer from our university as soon as possible and submit the housing application. Key dates include:

  • Wednesday 21 August - The deadline for applications is at midnight BST
  • Thursday 22 August - The ballot will be drawn
  • Friday 23 August - Clearing students who’ve been allocated accommodation will be emailed confirmation and a housing offer

What happens if I don’t get accommodation?

If we are not able to provide your with accomodation on campus, don’t worry - we’ll help anyone who’s unsuccessful in the ballot to find alternative housing.

Please note: extenuating circumstances and medical/disability circumstances are not taken into consideration in the Clearing housing ballot.
