 Accommodation guarantee for first year students

CSU is offering all first year students applying for full time on campus accommodation in 2016 a guaranteed place.

Students must have completed the application and paid the Application Fee and Orientation Tariff in full, before the closing date to be eligible. Accommodation offers will be sent via email or students will be contacted directly by phone. Students must also confirm their acceptance via the Housing Portal and register for BPOINT (Direct Debit) within the 7 day offer period as per their Accommodation Offer to be guaranteed a room.

While CSU will endeavour to place you in one of your preferred residences, popular options fill quickly. If none of your preferences are available you will be contacted with an offer of alternative accommodation.
