How to apply

Once you have been offered a place on one of our full-time courses based at the Cranfield campus, you will be eligible to apply for accommodation.
With your course offer, you will be sent a login and password for the student web portal (EVE) where you can apply for your preferred accommodation online.

Due to the popular demand for on-campus accommodation, we strongly recommend that you make your application as soon as you receive your EVE login information (ideally prior to May) in order to secure the accommodation you desire

We will begin to accept accommodation applications for the 2017-18 year from late January/February 2017.

At Cranfield we offer accommodation on a first come first serve basis, they are prioritised as follows:

  • Special consideration for medical reasons**
  • New students
  • Current students.

** If you feel your application requires special consideration due to a medical condition, you must make us aware at the time you apply for accommodation. We will ask you to supply a current medical letter from your doctor which explains why your application for on campus accommodation should be prioritised.

If you prefer to live off campus in the surrounding areas, we have lists of private accommodation which offer a variety of properties from studios to shared houses.
