How to Apply
You will need your student ID number to apply. If you do not have this please check any previous correspondence the college as sent to you or you can email Accommodation@askham-bryan.ac.uk
Applications for 2021/2022 will open in May.
Applications are via an online booking system and all communications will be by means of email so please make sure you check yours regularly once you have applied.
At the point of applying for accommodation you must pay a refundable Deposit of £300 in addition to the Accommodation Fee. The College shall hold the Deposit as security against dilapidations, breakages and unpaid fees for which the student is liable under their accommodation agreement.
This fee is converted into the deposit which is used to pay for any damages, unpaid fees or losses incurred by Askham Bryan College during the occupation of the room. Students who are returning into accommodation and have already paid a bond can have this carried over to the next year.
Once you have made an application the accommodation team will assess it to make sure you are eligible for accommodation (please see our FAQ page for detailed information on eligibility). If you are eligible you will be contacted with the offer of a room during the summer which you need to accept if you wish to take up residency at the college, you will then be sent a License agreement to sign and return to College, if you are under 18 your parent / guardian and guarantor will also need to sign the accommodation agreement. We cannot guarantee a specific room or room type but we will try to accommodate any preferences wherever possible.
Your full accommodation fee will be split into 9 equal instalments; the first instalment will be due on or before 20th August 2021, keys will not be released unless this payment has been made by 20th August 2021. This amount will be detailed on your invoice which Finance will send to you at the beginning of August and can be paid online by following this link [https://store.askham-bryan.ac.uk/]. The remaining 8 instalments can then be paid by recurring card payment from October to May.
If you have any financial queries please contact our Finance Team on 01904 772203.
If we have insufficient accommodation we will give priority to students who live the furthest away from College as per our residential policy. Any student who is unsuccessful in obtaining a room at this stage will be placed on a waiting list.
Accommodation is offered for the academic year only and is subject to the terms and conditions of occupation which must be signed prior to the student moving into the room. Students in College accommodation are expected to abide by these rules and parents of students aged under 18 are also asked to read the College Residential Agreement and confirm they also understand the rules.
Please be aware that accommodation for both FE and HE students is for term time only. Higher Education students will not have access to their rooms outside published College term dates so during Christmas and Summer holidays they will be asked to clear their rooms completely.
Students studying Further Education courses will be required to clear their rooms at Christmas, Easter and Summer and also during half terms in October, February and May. If their rooms are not cleared and permission has not been given by the Accommodation department for the student to leave their belongings in the room, then a charge will be applied for the duration of the holiday period. If the student’s course requires them to attend a placement or other course related activity during the holiday the student will need to book a room with the Accommodation department in advance, the additional cost will be charged to the student. They may still be required to clear their room and reside in a different room during the holiday period.
We will contact you in August with full details about moving in and your moving in date will depend on your circumstances, it will normally be the Sunday prior to the start of your course.
When you come to collect your keys you will also be enrolling onto your academic course, you will be sent further information from the Student Records Team in relation to what you need to bring with you.
