Prices and payment
You may download a full list of all accommodation fees for all University of Surrey owned accommodation from this page.
Please note that the prices given may be subject to amendment and should be used for guidance purposes only.
The following costs are included in the accommodation fees:
- Belongings insurance premium
- Your gas, electricity and water bills
- A broadband connection service to the University ResNet network
- Cleaning of communal areas (except for studios or family flats)
- Maintenance repairs
- Security 24/7
- Welfare and support services.
Your invoice for rent, called an Invoice for Residence Fees, will normally be sent to your University email account within 14 days of you moving in.
You will be asked to make an Advance Rent 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.
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 £154 per week in 2020/21 academic year:
|Payment||Period covered||Pay by date||Amount due|
|1||Advance Rent Payment||On room offer||£ 250.00|
|2*||19 September 20 to 02 January 21 (15 weeks, less prepayment)||9 October 2020*||£ 2,060.00|
|3||02 January 21 to 03 April 21 (13 weeks)||22 January 2020||£ 2,002.00|
|4||11 April 20 to 14 June 21 (10 weeks 2 days)||23 April 2021||£ 1,584.00|
|5||14 June 21 to 04 September 20 (11 weeks 5 days)||4 July 2021||£ 1,804.00|
* The payment date of second instalment may be later than this date as it is set to be 20 days after the invoice is sent to you.
**Undergraduates are allocated for the period 19-Sep-20 to 14-June-21 so they will make the first four payments. Postgraduates are allocated for the period 19-Sep-20 to 04-Sep-21 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.
