Undergraduate accommodation fees

The accommodation fee you pay depends on the type of room you have. We have a wide variety of accommodation and so the fees are varied too. Fees are calculated using a number of factors including room size, whether you have a basin, or en suite, facilities at your residence such as common rooms, gardens and sports facilities, any enhancement to your room, and catering (if applicable).

Your accommodation fee includes:

  • all gas, electricity and water rates,
  • internet
  • a bus pass
  • basic contents insurance
  • a Social Fund contribution

Accommodation fees are published on each residence page and are available to download as a single document below.

When applying for University-allocated accommodation please ensure that all your room preferences are within your budget. 

Paying rent 

When you accept your offer of accommodation, you sign a tenancy agreement - a contract that commits you to pay rent at the rate shown for the duration of your tenancy. Your accommodation fees are shown in your accommodation offer and tenancy, and can be paid by the following options: 

  1. Payment in full:
    • Total invoice payable by 24 October 
  2. Payment in 3 instalments:
    • Instalment 1 payable by 24 October – 40% of accommodation fee
    • Instalment 2 payable by 24 January – 30% of accommodation fee
    • Instalment 3 payable by 24 April – 30% of accommodation fee

You will need to set up a payment plan to make your rent payments, but you won't be able to do this until after the tenancy start when you are officially a student. For details please visit our current tenants payments pages.
