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
