You will need to be sent your offer of accommodation by our Allocations team. Once this offer has been sent to you, so you can accept your contract, you will need to provide one of the following approved payment method:
- Instalments - Direct Debit
- Instalments - Recurring card payments
- Sponsored Students
- Pay in Full
Explanation of each payment method: https://www.accom.ed.ac.uk/during-your-stay/finance/payment-options/
The University expects that funding for accommodation fees and living cost is organised before you start your programme of study.
Student accommodation fees must be paid per your lease’s terms and conditions.
Students who do not pay as expected are considered to have defaulted on their contractual obligation and arrears actions will be taken. Please read our Financial difficulty section if you are experiencing some financial difficulties.
Reminders, sent to University student email account, should not be ignored. Even if you think the reminder has been sent in error please do get in touch with us. All students will be treated with dignity and respect.
If you are receiving financial help from family, friends or similar please ensure they are aware of payment amounts and dates as this will not be considered a reason for delaying payment.
Once your contract is signed, you can't move out without our permission. If you do, you remain responsible for the payment of rent until someone else takes over your room.
