Description This field records the type of accommodation the student is living in during term time
Applicable to England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales
Coverage All Students where Engagement.INCOMINGEXCHANGE does not exist and StudentCourseSession.SCSMODE = 01, 02 or 03 and the student is in attendance at the provider.


This field is required to be returned for full-time students who spend any time in attendance at the provider during the reference period i.e. they are not dormant, on a placement, studying abroad or distance learning for the entirety of the reference period.

The Student may therefore be in coverage in some reference periods and not others if they, for example, take a placement for part of their Engagement.

If the student moves to a full-time mode part way through their Engagement, this field should be returned from when they become a full-time student.

04 Own residence includes a students permanent residence, which may be either owned or rented by them.

05 Other rented accommodation refers to a more temporary arrangement e.g. where a number of students each rent a room in the same house on a yearly basis.
