Do you need to pay for your accommodation in University-owned halls and UPP (Broadgate Park) halls for 2017/18?
How much to pay
Your accommodation fee will have been detailed in your offer letter. The amount due each term will also show on the portal. If you need help with your finances, there is lots of support and advice available from the University.
When to pay
Term 1 fees are due before 20 September 2017; unless a pre arranged payment plan has been agreed.
How to pay
Payment is required online via the University Portal (this is the preferred method of payment and should be used whenever possible).
Please note that if you wish to pay online via the University portal you will require your IT username, however for first year students your IT username will not be available until you have completed your online registration which opens 3 weeks before your official course start date. For most students this means registration will open on 4 September 2017. Whilst payments are due on 4 September we would advise they should be with us no later than 20 September so if you cannot pay on the 4th September you still have plenty of time.
If you are unable to pay online then please visit the Finance website for details of alternative ways to pay.
Who to contact
If you have any problems making your payment, please email Student Account Services:
International applicants who will apply for a Tier 4 student visa should note that the visa process requires you to show that you have sufficient funds to cover your living expenses (including accommodation) in the UK. The University does not include information on accommodaton fees owed or paid in the CAS which is prepared for your visa application. These fields automatically show £0.00. New students are advised to only pay for your accommodation once your visa has been granted. Current students are advised to ensure you are able to provide appropriate evidence of such funds. Payments already made towards accommodation may not meet UK Border Agency requirements and you may also need to show sufficient funds in an appropriate bank acount. Further information on the visa application process and the funds required to make a successful visa application can be found on the International Office's website.
