Additional costs

Electrical items testing
A standard £10 fee is charged so that we can test your personal electrical equipment. This service is compulsory. Tests are carried out in term one, but charges for the testing will be added to your second terms' bill.

Common room charge
The common room fee charge ranges from £10 to £20 per term, depending on the hall you live in. Some halls charge no common room fee, for details see the fee tables above. 

Payment schedules 2016/17 per hall

You need to pay your fees by the end of the second week of each term. Your licence agreement will include a schedule of payment dates and amounts. All schedules per hall are available below.
