The University Accommodation fees are usually charged termly around the time of student finance payments. They're based on the cost per week for your accommodation and include all bills and rates that would normally be paid separately in private tenancies.
The University also has a block hall insurance policy with Endsleigh Insurance Services that insures your personal belongings in you room. It's important to check the cover that's provided under this arrangement as items probably won't be covered for damage out of your accommodation (for example, a laptop might not be covered if damaged in the library). You can take out extra cover with Endsleigh if you'd like to increase the level of protection. You can find more details on the University web pages:
There are deadlines by which payments must be made for each term. If you have not paid by the deadline then a late payment fee of £20 will be charged for each month that the payment is late by.
If you're having problems paying your accommodation fees, you should seek advice as soon as you can from:
You'll be issued a reminder if you fall into debt with accommodation fees. After 5 weeks of the Payment Due Date if no attempt has been made to pay the debt, the University might apply for a Notice to Quit to begin eviction proceedings. If you find yourself in this position, please contact the Advice Centre to discuss your options
