Applying to Heathfield

All our rooms have now been allocated for 2019/20.
We welcome residents in all years. If you would like to look at Heathfield as an option for 2020/21, you are welcome to come and visit. Please get in touch with us to arrange a time.

Building a varied community

We aim to have a balanced and diverse mix of students from NUA and UEA, including students from all years, undergraduate and postgraduate. We particularly welcome applications from international students, and from third-year and post-graduate students.

We ask you to visit Heathfield before committing to a tenancy to make sure that you like what is on offer. This also gives us a chance to assess how well you will fit into the Heathfield community. If you have friends living here, do come and visit during the year to gain a flavour of life here at Heathfield.

For a very few students - those coming to Norwich from overseas especially - it will not be possible to visit in advance. Such students are invited to apply for the very small number of 'Try before you buy' rooms we have available. 

Please complete our application form below.

Try before you buy

You can stay at Heathfield for up to 7 nights at a cost of £154.00 (i.e. £22.00 per night). Please indicate this on the application form.

You can use the time to assess your housing options and decide if Heathfield is the right place for you. We send you a Paypal invoice for the rent when we receive your application. Making the payment will secure your room.

Of course, we hope you will like Heathfield and decide to stay. When you do, and sign a tenancy for the standard tenancy period, the rent you have paid will be deducted from the amount you owe for the first month of your tenancy.

Visiting Heathfield
We cannot make a firm offer of a room at Heathfield unless you have visited and we have met you. If you like what you see, and we feel you will fit in well at Heathfield, we will then offer you a room. Your application will then proceed, and you and we will both sign a binding tenancy agreement.
We do understand that if you live overseas it will be difficult to visit, so we reserve a very small number of rooms for 'Try before you buy' applicants (as described above). Please let us know which applies to you (required).
