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 2020/21 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:

  • 22 October 2020
  • 22 January 2021
  • 22 April 2021
  • 22 July 2020 (postgraduate students only)

You can set up your instalment plan via our online payment system. The payment plan must be set up before 30th September 2020 in order for your first instalment to be processed on time.

Setting up a payment plan


Once you accept your accommodation offer, you will be required to pay a £150 damage deposit to secure you room.

At this point, you will also be sent the information needed to set up your payment plan and Direct Debit Mandate.

Please remember that by signing your contract you undertake to occupy the room for your full contract length, as detailed in your agreement.

Your contract is legally-binding and by accepting this you are making a financial commitment to the University for the duration of your stay.

If you have any queries about your payments please see the University's student fees pages or contact our finance team.

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 Agreement. Please seek legal advice if you need to as this forms part of your financial commitment to the University.
