Direct Debit

Most students pay their accommodation charges by direct debit.

A Direct Debit is a simple, safe and convenient banking service, which enables you to instruct your Bank/Building Society to automatically pay your accommodation fees when they are due.  You provide your authorisation by completing a Direct Debit instruction.

A UK bank/building society is required. If you have an overseas account, and would like to pay by Direct Debit, you can set up a UK bank account on arrival to the UK.

Once your Direct Debit is set up, you will receive via email a list of the collection dates and the amounts due. We call this an Advance Payment Notice, the University will then collect your accommodation fees on the collection dates outlined in the notice. We will notify you at least five working days in advance of any amendments.
