    Returning students booking Dorset House/new applicants allocated to Dorset House in the first round of allocations will be asked to pay an initial rent payment of £250 when you complete your booking. Your first rent payment will be due in August. This will be for 10% of the total rent for the year. The £250 will be deducted from this payment.

    Students allocated Dorset House on 15 or 30 August will be required to make their first payment in August 2019. This will be for 10% of the total rent for the year.

    Payment plans are available. For more information, please contact Unite by email, or by visiting their website

    If you live in this hall your contract will be with Unite Students. Your rent will be payable directly to them, not Oxford Brookes. If you leave the university you may still be financially liable for the costs associated with your tenancy.
