An issue of great concern to both students and their parents/guardians alike is that of finance.
The cost of accommodation should be worked into any budgets that are drawn up. It might even be that cost is a deciding factor on selecting which halls of residence to apply for. Some people wish to pay for the entire year's fees in one go once your son or daughter has moved in and of course this is possible. For everyone else, payment plans have been set up to spread the payments. There is a choice between 3 or 7 payments if the contract is for 40 or 45 weeks, and between 4 and 9 instalments for 51 and 52 week contracts. Please be aware that the 7 or 9 instalment plans are only available if you or your son or daughter are paying by Direct Debit.

By accepting a licence agreement for a place in Halls of Residence, your son or daughter are entering into a legally binding agreement. This means that there are certain obligations that must be met, not least of which is paying fees.
The Terms and Conditions of Residence in University Accommodation create legally binding obligations, both for your son or daughter as a resident and us as the provider. When your son or daughter accept a licence agreement, they are agreeing to abide by these conditions, including staying and paying for the full period of residence, so it is vital that your son or daughter read them through carefully before they sign their offer letter.
If there is anything at all that you or your son or daughter do not understand or are uncertain of, please ask at your hall administration office or the Accommodation Office. We will be happy to answer any questions that you might have.
Please read these carefully before your son or daughter sign their contract and contact us immediately if you have any questions about them.
You must tell the Accommodation Office as soon as possible if your son or daughter will have difficulties paying the rent at the agreed times. They may be able to reschedule payments but your son or daughter will be expected to clear their account before the end of the contract. If they don't, they may not be able to take other University accommodation.
