Direct Debit Options

Most students pay their accommodation charges by direct debit. This means you can spread your payments throughout the year.

A Direct Debit is a simple, safe and convenient banking service, which enables you to authorise your Bank/Building Society to automatically pay your accommodation charges when they are due. 

  • A UK bank/building society is required, ask for details to set up a current account.
  • The Direct Debit account holder will receive a letter (Advanced Payment Notice) to confirm their account details and the amounts and dates of instalments. We will notify you at least five working days in advance of any amendments.
