Paying for your room

You will be asked to make an advance fee payment of £250 when you accept your room, but there is nothing else to pay for your room until your invoice is sent to you. This will be done after you have moved in.

Your invoice for accommodation fees will normally be sent to your University email account within 14 days of you moving in.

The invoice will be for the whole of your license period, and if you are staying for more than 15 weeks it will be split into instalments.

Below is an example of how much you would pay for each instalment if you live in one of our Band D rooms costing £165 per week during the 2023/24 academic year:

* The payment date of second instalment may be later than this date as it is based on the date that the accommodation invoice is sent to you .

**Undergraduates are allocated for the period 16 September 2023 to 10 June 2024 so they will make the first four payments. Postgraduates are allocated for the period 16 September 2023 to 31 August 2024 so they will make all of the payments.

The pay by dates for the above instalments are designed to be just after most students receive their funding from Student Finance England. If the instalment dates don't work for you, then please speak to your student financial adviser whose contact details will be on page two of your accommodation fee invoice.
