Accommodation applications are open to those holding a conditional or unconditional offer including first and second year undergraduates for a programme lasting at least one full academic year at The Courtauld Institute of Art.

Q. Can I extend my contract?
Extensions to your stay may be possible at all halls available, but are subject to availability. Please contact the relevant accommodation office for further details.
Q. How will I receive my accommodation decision?
Accommodation offers are sent to the email confirmed on your application.
Q. What are my chances of getting the accommodation I’ve applied for?
We allocate primarily based on distance and prior study in the UK, prioritising international students and first year undergraduates. Depending on demand we may not be able to guarantee accommodation to all first year undergraduate applications in Duchy House due to our limited capacity of 64 rooms.
Those living within 90 minutes commuting distance of central London are pragmatically less likely to secure accommodation, though students within this area have secured accommodation in previous years and you are still encouraged to apply.
Q. Can I stay in accommodation between terms?
All contracts include accommodation covering vacation periods between Autumn, Spring and Summer terms.
