Overdue Fees  

The accommodation fee must be paid in accordance with the payment schedule agreed with the Accommodation Office.  If a student does not meet the payments agreed, and does not engage with the Accommodation Office to agree an alternative payment plan, action will be taken to recover the debt. Failure to engage with the accommodation team to agree a suitable plan to manage payment in respect of outstanding fees will result in access to the students accommodation being denied until such times as they engage.

Failure to settle accommodation fees will result in the student being asked to leave University accommodation, details of their account will be passed to the University solicitors for recovery of the debt. If a student has outstanding accommodation fee debt, they will be ineligible to re-apply for University Accommodation.

Other financial advice is available by contacting the Students’ Union Advice Centre or Income and Student Finance staff at the Student Guidance Centre.

Exclusion from accommodation

A student excluded from accommodation under the conduct regulations or in respect of non payment of fees, will be asked to vacate their room and will continue to be liable for residential fees for the term of the accommodation contract, and will forfeit their deposit.

Taking action as set out above will not preclude the University from pursuing repayment of any outstanding debt by, for example, using a debt recovery agency.
