Payment of Accommodation Fees

Accommodation fees for students living in University Accommodation can be paid by either a single payment of the yearly fee or via a maximum of three instalments, in October, January and April (these are subject to change in order to coincide with student loan payments). Students are required to make the necessary arrangements for payment whilst completing the online Accommodation Licence Pack when securing University Accommodation.

The University will adopt standardised collection procedures that encourages students to pay on time. However, where there are outstanding fees and charges the University will instigate debt recovery processes. Further information regarding this can be found on the Fair Debt Collection Policy for Students webpage.

If a student fails to honour agreements to pay Accommodation Fees, proportionate and fair action to encourage settlement of the debt will be taken. This may include the imposition of like for like sanctions as follows:

  • Loss of right to receive further University accommodation,
  • Retention of accommodation deposit,
  • Referral of debt to external debt collection agency.
  • Action taken through the Courts for the recovery of debts.  A court judgement will severely affect your credit rating making it difficult for you to obtain future credit, mobile phone contract, mortgage, etc.

Students experiencing difficulties in paying any fees should seek financial advice or guidance at the earliest opportunity by contacting the Student Fees Office:

E-mail – fees@aber.ac.uk

Telephone – (01970) 622043

In person on the second floor of the Student Welcome Centre.

Additional help and support can be found from The Advice, Information and Money Service and The Students’ Union.

 

Acceptance fee

A sum of £100 is payable in order to reserve a room in University Accommodation.  Students are required to make the necessary payment whilst completing the online Accommodation Licence Pack when securing University Accommodation.  Current students living in University Accommodation who secure University Accommodation for the following academic year can choose to use their existing deposit to reserve the room.

On commencement of the licence period, the Acceptance Fee will convert to the Deposit and be held by the University for the duration of the students stay.  Shortly following the end of the licence period the Deposit, less any deductions under the Licence Agreement, will be reimbursed to the student.
