Your deposit for student accommodation

A deposit of £150 (from September 2018 onwards) is required for all types of accommodation. This is a security deposit which is retained throughout your stay.

Your deposit is held for the duration of your licence, to cover any rent arrears, damages and additional charges* you may have incurred.

You will receive an inventory when you arrive which we encourage you to complete and return. This will help the process at the end of the licence period should there be any dispute.

Your room should be returned in the same condition it was provided at the start of the licence period, allowing for 'fair wear and tear'.

Deposits will be refunded within 28 days if there are no deductions to be made. You will be notified of any proposed deductions, in which case please allow up to 8 weeks, for your remaining deposit to be refunded pending any dispute.

* additional charges: these may be fines incurred in accordance with UPR SA13, loss of key card etc; as stated within your licence agreement and the Student Guide to Living On Campus.
