By accepting the licence agreement for a place in Halls of Residence, you are entering into a legally binding agreement. This means that there are certain obligations that must be met, not least of which is paying your fees!
We know that for many of you this may seem a little overwhelming initially, so here is some information to help clarify what is expected of you, as well as what you can expect of us.
The Terms and Conditions of Residence in University Accommodation create legally binding obligations, both for you as a resident and us as the provider. When you accept the licence agreement, you are agreeing to abide by these conditions, including staying and paying for the full period of residence, so it is vital that you read them through carefully before you accept the offer of accommodation. If there is anything at all that you do not understand or are uncertain of, please ask someone at the Accommodation Office. We will be happy to answer any questions that you might have.
Please read these carefully before accepting the licence agreement and contact us immediately if you have any questions about them.
What happens if I cannot pay the rent?
You must inform staff at the Accommodation Office as soon as possible if you will have difficulties paying the rent at the agreed times. They may be able to offer the option of moving to a cheaper hall and so reduce your overall rent liability or they can arrange for you to meet with the University's Credit Control team who will be able to assist you with setting up a payment plan. Ignoring financial problems is never the answer to dealing with them. Seek advice at the earliest opportunity.
