How to pay your accommodation fees

Paying your accommodation fees

Paying your accommodation fees is simple! We have two ways in which to make your payment for the 2023/24 year, either in full or in instalments.

Payment in full

If you wish to pay for your accommodation in full, you can pay via our online payment system with a credit or debit card. This payment is required by the due date on the invoice sent to you by Student Fees.

Payment in instalments

If you wish to spread the cost of your accommodation fees in instalments, you can set up a Direct Debit or Continuous Card Payment to be taken out on the following dates:

  • 11 October 2023
  • 11 January 2024
  • 11 April 2024

You can set up your instalment plan via our online payment systemThe payment plan must be set up by 3rd October 2023 to ensure the first instalment is collected successfully. 

You will be able to set up your payment plan from late August.

We no longer request a deposit from students to secure their room.  When you have accepted your offer of accommodation, your room is secure.

Your contract

To secure your accommodation you must sign the tenancy agreement online.

This is a legally-binding contract which specifies details such as:

  • How much you must pay and what is included in the price
  • When your tenancy begins and ends
  • Specific conditions of your tenancy
  • What to do if you have a complaint.

If someone else is paying for your accommodation we strongly recommend you let them read the Accommodation License 2023-24. Please seek legal advice if you need to as this forms part of your financial commitment to the University.
