The college requires a £500 deposit to secure your accommodation. This is required with your accommodation acceptance form. Deposits are non-refundable if you find alternative accommodation prior to moving in, unless agreed by the Operations Manager Teresa Strike. Deposits are returned at the end of your residence, subject to any deductions required for end of tenancy cleaning and / or maintenance and repair works.

Paying for accommodation

Your accommodation charge is payable by Direct Debit, unless the college otherwise agrees, in accordance with your Licence Agreement.

The college requires you to have a UK bank account from which payments by Direct Debit can be made and into which the Deposit will be paid after the Licence Agreement ends. Students without a UK bank account must open one within two weeks from the date on which the Licence Agreement starts.

The college must be in receipt of cleared funds for the first month’s licence fee by the time your licence starts otherwise your keys will not be issued.

Any queries regarding accommodation payment should be addressed to Senior Finance Officer Kathleen Scroggins.
