At the point of applying for accommodation you must pay a refundable Security Deposit of £300 which is in addition to the Accommodation Fee. For the avoidance of doubt, the Security Deposit is taken as security against any damage by you/any visitors to your accommodation and to cover any shortfall that may arise in respect of your Accommodation Fee and is not a Holding Deposit as defined by section 3, Schedule 1 of the Tenant Fees Act 2019.  If you are a returning student who has previously paid a Bond, this will be carried over from the current year.

If you have any financial queries please contact Finance on 01904 772203.

Conditions of Accommodation

We can not guarantee a specific room or room type but we will try to accommodate any preferences wherever possible.

If we have insufficient accommodation to meet the number of applications we will give priority to students who live the furthest away from College, as per our residential policy. Any student who is unsuccessful in obtaining a room at this stage will be placed on a waiting list.

Accommodation is offered for the academic year only and is subject to the terms and conditions of occupation which must be signed prior to the student moving into the room. Students in Halls of Residence are expected to abide by these rules and parents of students aged under 18 are also asked to read the College Residential Agreement and confirm they also understand the rules.
