Payment in Full or Payment of Application Fee

You can opt to pay your accommodation charges in full, either as an advance payment or by the due date on the invoice. You can also pay your Accommodation Application Fee by one of the methods below.

Advance payments must be made either before you move in or during the first week of your contract. If your booking is for the full academic year you may be entitled to a 2% discount on the total charge. Please be aware that you will not be sent an invoice should you decide to make payment in advance.

Students who are only here for one term/one semester must pay by this method.

All charges must be paid by the due date or you will be subject to a late fee of £25.

Payment by Credit/Debit Card

Credit/debit card payments can be made online or at the Cash Office (in person) or by telephoning Accommodation Finance Team on 0191 208 1971.
