Make an online payment
Please note: If you set up a direct debit, your payment will be collected on our three installment dates. While we recommend setting up a direct debit or paying online, you can also pay by bank transfer, cash, card or cheque.
If you're a parent of guardian wanting to pay the rent of a student, the simplest way is via our online payments service. You can also make a bank transfer. You cannot pay via e:Vision.
The easiest way to make sure you pay for everything on time is to set up a direct debit. Once your direct debit is set up, your bank will automatically calculate and pay the exact amount due on each instalment date.
If you are making one off payments, the simplest way to see what you need to pay is by logging in to the accommodation hub and clicking 'review my accepted offer'. On the next page you will see your three rent instalment dates and how much you need to pay for each.

Postgraduates, continuing students and undergradates (who have had their advanced payments waived)
You will need to add £200 to the value shown for your first term's rent, to be used as your damage deposit.

If you would like an invoice of what you have paid, you can request one by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that if you are making an online payment it may taker up to 24 hours for your payment to go through. International payments may take longer.
Yes. If you would like to pay all of your accommodation fees in one payment, please make sure you write that the payment is for your accommodation fees in the payment reference box.
The accommodation bursary gets paid automatically towards your accommodation fees on the payment dates.
If you have set up a direct debit, any extra you need to pay after your bursary will be calculated automatically. It will also ensure that you don't accidentally overpay accommodation fees
If you have any questions about your bursary you can contact Student Finance Support at email@example.com or call them on +44 (0)1904 324145.
Find more information about receiving your award on the bursaries and scholarships page.
If your application is approved we’ll reduce your room price from the price to the equivalent price of shared bathroom accommodation within the same price band.
For example: If we offered you a premium ensuite room, you would only have to pay the rent of a premium shared bathroom.
You won’t receive a direct monetary payment. Instead we’ll credit your accommodation account with any amount you have overpaid and adjust your room price for future charges.
For example: If we offered you a Standard ensuite room for £20.71 per night*, we’d only charge you for a standard shared bathroom (£18.72 per night*). We would adjust your rent payments by £1.99 per night difference for the duration of your contract.
