Accommodation Payments

6 September 2018

Information for students living in University accommodation who are in receipt of funding from Student Loans Company

Some students have contacted the Student Funding Office about the third instalment for their accommodation in University halls of residence. They have pointed out that the due date is 24th April 2019 but the third payment from the Student Loans Company for living costs is not due to be made until 29th April 2019.

For students who are intending to use their living cost loan to pay the third instalment, we offer the following advice and reassurance:

  1. Please ensure that you have switched your accommodation invoice to instalments before the deadline. The default is a single payment from you for the full amount that is due on 24th October. You are required to login to the MyBristol portal and actively select the option to pay in three instalments.
  2. Make your payments for the first two instalments on time or before the due date.
  3. Make your payment for the third and final instalment on 29th April 2019.

If you follow these steps, you should not receive any debt-chasing emails or letters from the University and you will not be charged interest or be fined for paying the third instalment slightly later than the due date. You do not need to contact the university to request permission to follow these steps.

All other students, including International, EU and self-funded UK students, should pay their instalments on or before the due date on the invoice.
