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 £135.50 per week in 2016/17:

Payment Period covered Payment due Amount due
1 Pre-payment On room offer £250
2 24 September to 7 January 2017 (15 weeks, less prepay) 21 October 2016 £1,782.50
3 7 January 2017 to 8 April 2017 (13 weeks) 3 February 2017 £1,761.50
4 8 April 2017 to 19 June 2017 (10 weeks 2 days) 5 May 2017 £1,393.71
5 19 June 2017 to 9 September 2017 (11 weeks 5 days) 17 July 2017 £1,587.29
Total     £6,775

* The payment date of second instalment may be later than this date as it is set to be 28 days after the invoice is sent to you.

**Undergraduates are allocated for the period 24 September 2016 to 19 June 2017 so they will make the first four payments. Postgraduates are allocated for the period 24 September 2016 to 9 September 2017 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.
