Once you have applied for your accommodation (via post, email or online) and your application has been approved, you enter into a licence agreement with the University. This means that a room has been reserved for you. 

The licence is now governed by the Consumer Regulations (June 2014), which states that the University accommodation contracts are not a contract to which the “cooling off” cancellation period applies.  Details of what this means to you, can be found with The Consumer Contracts Regulation link below:
