    Instalment payment options

    When you accept your contract you can select your preferred instalment plan. Whichever you choose, the total price is always the same. You can also change your instalment plan later if you wish.

    • One payment - you can pay the full amount at the beginning of your tenancy.
    • Three instalments - You can choose to pay in three instalments which coincide with when you receive your student loan. The dates for 2018-19 are 4 October, 31 January and 4 April. This option is designed for UK students using a Higher Education Maintenance Loan from the Student Loans Company. If you choose this option, your full contract will be split into (approximate) thirds and charged to you on the above dates. Please note that the three payment dates do not directly coincide with the period of time you are paying for.
    • Pay monthly - monthly rental changes are payable on the first day of each month.

    If your accommodation contract is for semester two only, you will have the option of the following plans.

    • One payment - you can pay the full amount on 31 January.
    • Pay monthly - monthly rental changes are payable on the first day of each month.

    Booking confirmation

    When you accept a contract for accommodation you will be required to pay a booking confirmation fee. 

    • Most of our halls are managed by the university. For these halls your first payment will be your first rent charge, due in early October.
    • If you are accepting a contract for Cheney Student Village you will also need to pay a £200 refundable damage deposit.
    • If you are accepting a contract for the Mews, there is a reservation fee of £300 payable. You must also either provide a UK guarantor or pay your fees upfront in full.
    • If you are accepting a contract for one of the halls operated by A2Dominion (Canterbury House, Sinnet Court or Windmill Road), there is a reservation fee of £250 which converts to a deposit at the start of your tenancy. You must also pay a month’s rent before you move in and take out contents insurance with Endsleigh Insurance. This is a one-off cost of £14 and is payable to the A2Dominion ahead of the start of your tenancy.
