Accommodation Fees Guide 2020/21

Accommodation fees are to be paid in 3 instalments. As part of accepting The Residence Contract you set up the payment plan and the accommodation fees are due on the dates set out in the table below. You will have chosen to pay the instalments either by direct debit or recurring credit or debit card.

Please note that direct debits can only be set up from a UK bank account and not savings or deposit accounts. American Express cards are not an accepted payment method.

Alternatively, you may have opted to pay in full and therefore there will be no request for further payment of the accommodation fee. Likewise, if your sponsor has paid, you will have confirmed this on accepting The Residence Contract.

The payment dates set out below are different to semester dates as the Residence Contract starts and ends before the standard University academic semesters. Therefore, payment dates are different to payment period.
