Terms and conditions

International student guarantee

If you are an international student studying a degree, we guarantee accommodation for the first year of your course. This is providing you have accepted our offer for a place at the university, applied for accommodation and confirmed your preference before 31 July.


Students on programmes of study lasting more than one year should be aware that accommodation fees are subject to annual revision and typically increase by up to 5% per annum. Accommodation fees are set by the provider. We give students as much notice as possible of any increases.

The prices listed for Pre-sessional English courses are for guidance only. For further information email

The block accommodation fees for Scape East do not include the cost of meal plans, which are available on a half-board basis at an additional cost.

Your accommodation contract

Students on degree or university preparation programmes in private residences will normally begin their contract on the Saturday before your course start date. The contract will cover the duration of the first day of your course.

All contracts include the Christmas and Easter holiday periods. This enables you to leave your possessions in your room during university holiday periods.

For students on English courses, the fees for both residential and homestay accommodation cover tuition periods only. If your course or study plan spans a vacation period, the accommodation will need to be paid for during the vacation period as well.

Homestay accommodation is only available during vacations at special request and is not guaranteed. A supplement may be payable over the two-week Christmas period. If you wish to leave your belongings with the host family during a vacation period, the full weekly amount will be payable.

Please enquire at for information regarding the availability of residential accommodation for under 18 students.

How to pay

Students/parents must pay all accommodation fees in full by cheque, banker's draft, bank transfer or credit or debit card, six weeks before the course starts. Payments should be made in pounds sterling.
