How to apply for accommodation

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 in order to secure the accommodation you desire

We are now accepting applications for the 2019-20 academic year.

At Cranfield we offer accommodation on a first come first serve basis. Applications 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.
