IFP (International Foundation Programme) 2019/2020


To make an application for IFP (International Foundation Programme) accommodation you will need a full time offer of study at Warwick on the IFP programme. Before making an application for accommodation, you will need:

The accommodation application deadline is 31 July 2019 so please make sure you have submitted your application by this date. If you have any questions, please email allocations at warwick dot ac dot uk.

When you have completed your application form, please carefully check that your application details, including your accommodation preferences and their order, are correct on the confirmation page before submitting. You will also receive a confirmation email that will contain the details from your application. If you have not received your confirmation email within 48 hours, or if there are any differences between your confirmation and what you have submitted, please contact Warwick Accommodation as soon as possible.

Your confirmation email and any offers of accommodation will be sent to the contact email address on your student record.

If you have applied before the 31 July 2019 deadline, accepted your IFP offer, and met the conditions of your offer by 22 August 2019, you are guaranteed a place on campus. You will need to meet all of these conditions to be guaranteed a place on campus.

The accommodation application form will remain open after 31 July 2019, and you will be able to submit an application. While we are not able to guarantee that you will be allocated a place on campus, we will endeavour to allocate you to a room, subject to availability. In years of high demand, some late applicants may be asked to share rooms on a temporary basis.

You will need to submit the appropriate application as detailed on the specific accommodation requirements web page for your condition. Please be aware the deadline for your request being supported by the relevant team is 22 August 2019, so you will need to submit suitable evidence in advance to ensure there is enough time for it to be assessed.

You can see your accommodation options on the application form. If you will be under 18 on 21 September 2019, you will only be able to select en suite options as your hall preferences. For an overview of our undergraduate accommodation, please look at the undergraduate residences web page before completing your application.

Most applications are allocated through a random ballot which aims to match the highest amount of people with their highest numbered preference possible. Other applications are allocated subject to availability. While we aim to allocate you to a hall of your preference, we are not able to guarantee that this will be possible. If we have more rooms adapted for accessibility requirements than are required for the academic year, it is possible students who do not require adaptations will be allocated to an adapted room.

While we try to take your preferences into account, there is no guarantee that you will be allocated to accommodation which matches your preferences. It is also possible in years of very high demand that further accommodation options will be added or removed after you have notified us of your preferences, and you may be allocated to an option that was not advertised when your application was submitted.

You can select up to three en suite halls as preferences in your application. You will need to submit a total of six preferences, including at least three shared bathroom halls. Around half of our accommodation is en suite, so there is a chance you will be allocated to a shared bathroom hall. We would recommend only selecting halls you would be happy to be allocated to as one of your preferences. For more information on how we allocate please see our allocation policy.

If you're coming to Warwick, we will process your accommodation application in late August, and only after you have an unconditional firm offer of study at Warwick. There's nothing you need to do until we contact you regarding your allocation from late August. We will contact you about your allocation between late August and early September. If you haven't heard from us by 12 September 2019, then please get in touch with us by emailing allocations at warwick dot ac dot uk dot
