Accommodation - University of Leeds

How to Pay

Paying your deposit

Every student who accepts a contract for University of Leeds accommodation must pay a £200 deposit which must be paid within 4 days of the offer of accommodation.

The deposit is a returnable sum providing all rent is paid and no damage or administration charges are made. It will be returned (less any deductions) within 4 weeks of contract end date. Deposits returned via overseas bank transfers can take a number of weeks and you will be subject to exchange rate fluctuations.

The most convenient way to pay your deposit is by credit/debit card via our secure online payment facility. Using our secure online website is usually the fastest and safest way to pay your deposit.
