1 November 2014 - 1 May 2015 inclusive

*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 2014-15

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.
