Deposit

If you are made an offer of accommodation in University residences, you are required to pay a deposit of £300.00 in order to secure your place in our residences. Check our 'When will I hear?' page to understand when we will process your application and when you will hear about University accommodation.

This accommodation deposit will be split and credited equally against your accommodation charges in terms 2 and 3. This will reduce the outstanding amount for terms 2 and 3 by £150.00 per term and should be taken into account when making your termly payments.

Update 2018/19: We have recently introduced a new finance system, which means that this year we will be unable to offset the £300.00 deposit against the second and third term instalments of your accommodation charges, as stated in the Terms and Conditions of Residence. Instead, we will offset the deposit fully against the first instalment of your accommodation charge.

If you wish to pay the whole year in advance, please remember to deduct the amount of your deposit from your total charges due. If you do not do this, we will refund the deposit in line with the Student Finance Regulations.  

If you are allocated to one of our nominated residences, you will need to read your contractual information to confirm the details relating to deposits for Northfield, Northernhay House, Point Exe or The Printworks.
