How to apply

Accommodation applications are made online. We recommend applying as early as possible, as some residences are very popular and fill up quickly.

The 24 successful recipients will be notified of their scholarship at the same time as they receive their 2022 accommodation offer in December 2021. Students have 10 days to accept their offer.
