When to pay
You will need to pay your accommodation fees once you have moved into your residence and received an invoice. Go to your online financial statement to view your invoices.
Once you have received your invoice, you have two options: either pay it in full or pay in instalments.
- Pay in full:
- Total accommodation fee payable by 24 October 2021
- Pay in three instalments:
- Instalment 1 payable by 24 October 2021 – 40% of accommodation fee
- Instalment 2 payable by 24 January 2022 – 30% of accommodation fee
- Instalment 3 payable by 24 April 2022 – 30% of accommodation fee
How to pay
You can pay by debit card, credit card or direct debit, whether you are paying in full or in instalments.
If you’re not sure how to set up a payment plan to pay in instalments, follow these instructions. They explain how to set up a payment plan for tuition fees - the instructions for paying your accommodation fees are identical.
If you are not able to use any of these payment methods, read about the other options we offer.
If you fail to pay
If you do not pay your rent by the deadlines stated in your tenancy agreement, you will receive several reminders to set up a payment plan. Your residence conditions state that if you have still not paid 28 days after it was due, we may give you 28 days’ notice to leave the accommodation. Full details of the process are outlined in our arrears procedure (PDF).
If you are struggling with accommodation costs, find out about the support available from our student funding team.
If you are living in one these properties, you will pay your rent directly to A2Dominion or Unite.

You can choose to pay in full or in three instalments, in September, January and May – the exact date and amount will depends on your residence and room type.
Visit the A2Dominion website for details of how you can pay.
Unite will provide details of how and when to make your payments when you confirm your booking with them. For further details, go to the Unite website.
Landlord rent reference
Most landlords and agents require a reference. We can provide a reference for you if you have lived in a University of Bristol residence.
A rent reference is a statement of your rental account. It shows if you are up to date with payments or owe money. If you owe money, you can make a payment to pay off your debt and request a new rent reference.
We provide references direct to you. You must give them to your landlord.
Complete the Request a rent reference form. We will email your reference to you within 5 working days.
