Make it easy

The easiest way to pay for your accommodation is by Direct Debit, but you can also make payments online using e:Vision, which gives you the option to pay by card or make international payments using Flywire. You can also make use of our online payment service. We do not accept cash payments for accommodation fees.

Set up your Direct Debit by 30 September 2024 and we'll calculate the payments for you. You will be debited on the three instalment dates set in October, January and April.

Set up a direct debit by 30 September 2024 and your rent and any additional charges will be paid automatically and on time by your bank.

Bursaries and disability funding

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 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 band 3 ensuite room for £24.61 per night*, we’d only charge you for a band 3 shared bathroom (£22.25 per night*). We would adjust your rent payments by £2.36 per night difference for the duration of your contract.
