Paying for accommodation

Contracts are for 42 or 43 weeks from September to July and include the Christmas and Easter vacations. 

You pay the University direct for your accommodation in full or in instalments:

  • 18 weeks due September, 12 weeks due January and 12 weeks due April (in-line with payments of grants and loans from the Student Loan Company)
  • A parent, guardian or other can pay on your behalf via standing order of eight payments, the first due in September then on the 1st of each month from November to May.

Rates include heating, lighting, wifi access and personal contents insurance.

For first year residents, buying a Dining-in-Card is obligatory at £820, which gives you around £19.50 per week to spend on campus food (in the shop, canteen or Sport Centre café). This means you’ll keep eating even if you’re spent all your money elsewhere.

Postgraduate break clause

We understand that many postgraduate students go on placement so we offer a 43 week contract (the duration of your course) with a break clause. So, if you do find your placement is more than 30 miles away from campus or more than a 30 minute commute you can break your tenancy for the duration of the placement and not pay for this time.
