You'll need to have completed the steps in how to apply for accommodation before you can pay.

Paying your advance rental payment

The advance rental payment is not a deposit. The amount is deducted from your fees for the rest of the year and secures your accommodation.

  1. Log in to eVision
  2. Click on My Applications
  3. Click on My Balance
  4. Click on Make a payment

You will be directed to our payment partner Flywire, who can accept payments from 240 countries in over 140 currencies.

  1. Select your country or region from the list
  2. If paying your advance rental payment:
    • Enter the amount (in GBP) in the accommodation advance rental payment box, click on Next
  3. If paying your accommodation fees:
    • Enter the amount (in GBP) in the accommodation fees box, click Next
  4. You will see the payment options, available currencies, and exchange rates for each payment method for your country.
  5. Choose your preferred payment method, and follow the instructions on screen.
  6. Once you have made your payment, the balance in My Balance will update the next working day (UK time).

Someone else is paying your advance rental payment for you

If they are with you in person, log into My Applications as above. Ask them to type in their card number or bank details when asked.

If they are not with you, you must not give them your password. Instead, they should use our Flywire guest checkout so they can pay without needing to log in. You will need to give them your Student ID number.

Pay your remaining accommodation fees by Direct Debit instalments

You will see your remaining balance on screen. You can pay fees of £400 or more by instalments from your UK bank account.

  • Click on Choose direct debit plan
  • Select Accommodation fees
  • Click on Go to review instalment plan

You will see the dates and amounts of your Direct Debit payments.

A standard Direct Debit plan consists of:

  • 8 monthly payments for a standard 52 weeks Residences Contract
  • 4 monthly payments for a one semester contract

Follow the instructions on screen to set up your Direct Debit payments.

Late payments

You will need to make the full payment or set up an instalment plan by the due date in your Residences Contract. This is very important. If you do not do this, a late payment fee of 3.5% will be added to the amount due.

The precise level of the late payment fee depends upon the amount of your accommodation fees. For example, an overdue fee of £4,500 will incur a late payment fee of £157.50.

If you default on one of the payments due under your instalment plan, the University reserves the right to cancel the Direct Debit Instruction and your fees will become due in full immediately. A late fee will also be applied when a Direct Debit Instruction is cancelled.
