How to Pay

Reservation Deposit / Advanced Rent Payment
  • A Reservation Deposit of £50.00 (Previously £350) is payable on acceptance of your offer of accommodation and we ask that you pay this through your Accommodation Account as this will secure your room.
  • The Reservation Deposit of £50.00 is required within 7 days to accept the offer (this will change to 3 days once the term has started or within 2 weeks of contract start date) to confirm your booking.  The reservation deposit is non-refundable if you do not move into the accommodation.
  • Keys will only be issued if the Reservation Deposit has been paid.
  • You will only receive an offer of accommodation when you have an Unconditional Offer to study.
  • The Reservation Deposit will be deducted from your 1st terms rent.
  • Unfortunately, we cannot secure accommodation without the Reservation Deposit which is non-refundable if you fail to take up your accommodation.
