Each year, we welcome over 200 students from Universities and Institutions all around the world, who study at UEA as part of a visiting or exchange programme, or on special one-year or one-semester visiting courses. The application and allocation processes for visiting and exchange students can be quite different, so read on for all the essential information regarding the academic year 2013-14.
VISITING EXCHANGE Students (NOT Erasmus, Erasmus Mundus or Science Without Borders)
Full Academic Year and Autumn-Semester Students
If you are coming to UEA for the autumn-semester or full academic year 2013, we would advise you to apply for UEA accommodation from now up until 09.00am GMT on 10th June 2013 using the 'Standard Undergraduate Accommodation Application Form' (see below). You can continue to apply up to 11.59pm GMT on 31st July 2013 but the bulk of visiting exchange allocations are done around the first half of June so if you apply earlier, you will receive an offer of accommodation earlier (around the end June / early July) and are more likely to receive your higher choices on your application form. Please note that allocations for visiting exchange are made based on date of application.
We are usually provided with a list of all one-semester and full academic year students so you do not need to contact us to let us know which period you are planning to study.
Additional information on accommodation for 2013-14:
A new accommodation block is being built between Orwell Close, Wolfson Close, Britten House and Colman House throughout the academic year of 2013-14. As a result, there are a number of rooms within residences that are in the vicinity of this work and will have a 10% discount, and you will be able to select these rooms on your application form if you so wish.
In addition to this, we have the 'Premier Accommodation Range' (subject to availability) which are large flats that are exclusively for one person. These limited flats range between £100.94 - £217.35 per week depending on the facilities available in each flat, and are only available on 38 week licences. If you are interested in any of these, you would need to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org separately after completing the accommodation application form.
Please note that both the 'Building Work Rooms' and the 'Premier Accommodation Range' are only available to those studying the full academic year.
Spring-semester students do not need to apply for accommodation until the month of November and offers are usually sent out within the first two weeks of December.
Those who will be studying the Australian / New Zealand calendar-year will initially have to sign for the spring-semester, and will usually be contacted by us after Easter for the autumn-semester extension in accommodation. If any resident extends in accommodation from the spring-semester to a full calendar year, the higher semester prices apply ot both semesters in that year. Please note that there is also a yearly price increase on the 1st August.
ERASMUS and ERASMUS MUNDUS Students
If you are coming to UEA for the academic year 2013-14, you are not guaranteed accommodation in UEA residences. We would therefore recommend contacting the Private Accommodation Office:
Homerun, Student Union Advice Centre (Private Accommodation): email@example.com
Telephone: +44 (0)1603 592505
SCIENCE WITHOUT BORDERS students
If you are coming to UEA for the academic year 2013-14, please contact your liaison in the UEA Study Abroad Office directly regarding accommodation.
How and when to apply for UEA accommodation (Full Academic Year and Autumn VISITING EXCHANGE - NOT Erasmus, Erasmus Mundus or Science Without Borders)
Visiting and Exchange students (with the exception of Butler and Dickinson students who do not need to apply) starting courses in September 2013, should apply for accommodation using the Standard Undergraduate Accommodation Application Form from now up until 09.00am GMT on 10th June 2013 (though you can continue to apply up to the generic deadline of 11.59pm GMT on 31st July 2013 but the bulk of visiting exchange are allocated in June). Allocations are done in date order so the earlier you apply, the more likely you'll be given your higher choices. Offers will be sent out around the end of June / early July.
If you have any special requests (for example 'maturer areas' with no first years), or with someone else (you would both need to provide each other's names separately on your forms or requests), please add comments to the special requirements box on the form or e-mail us directly.
Please note that if you are studying the autumn-semester only, the 'twin room to share' would not be offered so please do not list this on your application form. If you are studying the spring-semester, there may be limited vacancies available - to be confirmed. The 'twin room to share' is available to all academic year students.
Please remember to add us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to your e-mail account address book so our e-mails don't go into your junk/spam, and check your e-mails regularly as we will usually give about five days for you to respond.
One-semester accommodation fees If you are coming to UEA for the autumn-semester or spring-semester only, we arrange special autumn-semester or spring-semester accommodation licences respectively (you do not need to note this on your application form). You should be aware that the nightly rate of accommodation is higher in proportion to the length of stay.
