Accommodation fees 2017/18

  • Oxford Brookes offers many different hall choices. For information about each hall and the cost of living in halls please visit the accommodation pages.

    When you accept a contract for University accommodation you will do this online via the accommodation portal. As part of your contract acceptance process you will be required to

    • Pay a non-refundable Booking Confirmation fee of £230. This is paid to secure your offer of a room and will be deducted from your first payment of rent
    • If you are accepting a contract for Cheney Student Village you will also need to pay a £200 refundable damage deposit
    • Select your preferred number of instalments for paying the remainder of your accommodation fees

    All of the above steps are completed online via your accommodation portal, including the payment of your Booking Confirmation fee by either a credit or UK debit card only.

    Instalment options

    You have the choice of two instalment options;

    1. Rental charges will be added to your account on a monthly basis and are payable on the 1st day of each month up until the end of your contract. Charges for part months (such as at the beginning and end of your contract) will be due on the 1st day of the nearest whole month. For example, if your contract starts on 16th September your September charges will be due on 1st October.

    2. If you are a UK student using a Higher Education Maintenance Loan from the Student Loans Company (SLC) to pay your accommodation you may choose to pay in 3 equal amounts on 4th October 2017, 31st January 2018 and 4th April 2018. This option has been designed around when you will receive your maintenance payments from the SLC.
