Paying for your room

Your invoice for rent, called an Invoice for Residence Fees, will normally be sent to your University email account within 14 days after you move in.

You will be asked to make a pre-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 done after you have moved in.

The invoice will be for the whole of your license period, and if you are staying for more than one semester 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 £144 per week in 2018/19:

Payment Period covered Payment due Amount due
1 Pre-payment On room offer £   250.00
2 22 September 2018 to 5 January 2019 (15 weeks, less prepay) 18 October 2018 £1,910.00
3 05 January 2019 to 06 April 2019 (13 weeks) 31 January 2019 £1,872.00
4 06 April 2019 to 17 June 2019 (10 weeks 2 days) 2 May 2019 £1,481.14
5 17 June 2019 to 14 September 2019 (12 weeks 5 days) 13 July 2019 £1,830.86
Total     £7,344.00

* The payment date of second instalment may be later than this date as it is set to be 27 days after the invoice is sent to you.

**Undergraduates are allocated for the period 22 September 2018 to 17 June 2019 so they will make the first four payments. Postgraduates are allocated for the period 22 September 2018 to 14 September 2019 so they will make all of the payments.

The collection 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.
