Booking Fee

Applicants will be required to pay a £100 Booking Fee when submitting their application.

Once you accept an accommodation offer from University, the booking fee becomes non-refundable.

The fee covers three elements:

  1. It insures your personal possessions in your room
  2. It insures the University against non-attributable damage in communal areas outside the apartment
  3. It contributes to the social fund for the Residence Life Events Programme.

If you apply for accommodation but do not get on to a course of study at the University, your booking fee will be refunded.

The booking fee only becomes non-refundable:

  • once you are accepted onto a course of study
  • have been allocated a room
  • and accept the terms and conditions


Before applying, you need to understand the full cost of accommodation and all the funding available to you. Funding may come from a student loan, your parents, scholarships, bank overdraft, weekend work etc.

Appropriate funding needs to be in place before you commit to a university room. Once you accept a room contract, you will have to pay for your contracted period.

To make budget planning easier, we listed weekly and annual rates for our accommodation.

When you leave

Students usually leave the accommodation in a reasonable condition after their contract ends. You will receive guidance on how to do this before the end of your contracted period.

It involves removing all rubbish and personal belongings from your room/apartment and ensuring the bedroom and communal areas are left clean and tidy.

It is important that all equipment and furniture is still in a fair condition. If fabrics, furniture or fittings are deemed to be in poor condition, damage and cleaning charges may apply.
