You must have a current account with a UK clearing bank.

If your University contract is for a period of 38 weeks, you may choose one of two Direct Debit options:

Accommodation 2015-16
In seven equal monthly instalments from
1 November 2015 - 1 May 2016 inclusive

In three variable termly instalments on

1 November 2015

1 February 2016

1 May 2016*

 

*Whilst your last payment for rent will be in May you should be aware that any fines or damage charges applied to your account after this date, will also be collected by direct debit during June or July. You will receive an Advance Payment Notice indicating the amount and payment date.

If your University contract is for a period of 50 weeks, you may choose one of two Direct Debit options:

Accommodation 2015-16
In nine equal monthly instalments from
1 November 2015 - 1 July 2016 inclusive

In four variable termly instalments on

Students staying on for a further year in University accommodation will have the option of paying monthly/termly and should refer to their contract.

If there are insufficient funds in your account on the due date, you will be charged a late fee of £25 and your bank will also charge you.

Students with a 12 months NUstudenthomes contract have the option of 10 equal monthly instalments or four termly instalments .  All NUStudenthomes students will be contacted by the Accommodation Finance Team via e-mail with further instructions regarding the setting up of your direct debit instruction.

If you have accepted your accommodation and have chosen to pay in instalments you will be sent a Direct Debit Advance payment Notice confirming the payment amounts and dates payments will be collected.

Payments are normally collected on the 1st of the month.
