Payment Methods

The information on this page is relevant to the academic year 2022-23.

Direct Debit

Most of our students choose Direct Debit as their method of payment for their accommodation fees. A Direct Debit is a simple, safe, and convenient banking service, which allows you to instruct your bank or building society to automatically pay your accommodation fees on the due date. 

To set up a Direct Debit, you need to have a UK bank or building society. If you are an overseas student and do not have this, you can set up a UK bank or building society account when you arrive in the UK.

Once your Direct Debit is set up, you will get an email with the payment schedule and amounts due - this is known as an Advance Payment Notice. We will then collect your accommodation fees on the collection dates outlined in the notice. Any changes to the payment schedule will be communicated to you at least five working days in advance of the collection date.
