Requests to the school for a Common Confidential Reference (CCRF) to support your application closed on August 23 (extended to August 25).

Students who have submitted their CCRF application on time are assured that the Universities will have their references lodged with the Universities by September 10 latest. We can’t guarantee late applications – they will be done as time allows.

Halls of Residence Applications for 2022

Applications for a place in a University Hall of Residence for next year have been open since August.

Despite the deadline we recommend that students have their application submitted by September 15, but the sooner the better.

Part of the process involves asking the school for a CCRF (Common Confidential Reference Form). You do this from the Halls application form & the request automatically comes to the school.

The sooner you can get your CCRF request to the school the better – we undertake to get all requests that are received on time to the relevant Universities by September 15.
