How will my accommodation contribution be applied to my account? 

The great news is you don’t need to do anything; the contribution will be applied to your account automatically. Once you have accepted your accommodation contract and paid the £200 deposit, you will need to set up your instalment plan as normal. The credit will then be applied to your account and your instalment amounts will be re-calculated appropriately. If the cost of your accommodation contract is less than £6,500, you will not be required to set up an instalment plan.  

How much is my accommodation contract? 

On your contract offer you will be able to see the total cost of your accommodation (exclusive of the accommodation contribution from the University). If you didn’t download a copy of this, please contact the Accommodation Office at and we will be happy to provide you with another copy of your contract. 

A residence bill will emailed to you in early October to confirm that the contribution has been applied to your account. Any remaining balance (above the £6,500) can be paid in instalments. Please ensure that you set up your plan before the 17 October deadline.

What if my accommodation costs are less than £6,500?

The deferral contribution is up to a sum of £6,500. This means that if your contract is less than this amount, you won’t receive the difference as a personal cash sum to yourself. The credit offered is only eligible for University of Leeds accommodation costs. 

What if I want to transfer accommodation? 

Each year we open a transfer window for residents who wish to move rooms for a range of reasons, this usually happens in October. The room transfer option is not guaranteed and is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The accommodation contribution does not impact your eligibility to apply for a room transfer, but we are only able to move the accommodation contribution to University of Leeds owned accommodation. As a result, in order to keep the accommodation contribution, we can only facilitate room moves between university owned residences as listed above.

Should you wish to transfer to one of our halls of accommodation that isn’t owned by the University of Leeds, you will be responsible for the cost of the contract offered to you and the accommodation contribution will no longer be valid.  

What if I leave the University of Leeds? 

If you withdraw or are withdrawn from the University, then the accommodation contribution will no longer be valid and you should not expect to receive a refund of the difference. The credit offered is only eligible for University of Leeds accommodation costs within the 2022/23 academic year.
