Your son or daughter will need to pay a £200 deposit and set up an instalment plan when they accept their offer of accommodation.
This tells Student Finance (Fees) how they intend to pay their rent. The instalment plan must be set up by the deadline or the full amount will be due immediately. Read Paying your rent to find out about instalment plans.
Even if you, as a parent or guardian, are paying the bill, the accommodation agreement is a contract between us and your son or daughter. Data protection regulations mean we can usually only discuss the details directly with them. It's not that we don't want to talk to you. We will be happy to talk to you about any general queries, but we can't go into specific details unless we have your son or daughter's written permission for us to do so.
Any residence statements (accommodation bills) will be sent directly to your son or daughter's University email address. To see this, you will need to ask your son or daughter to forward it to you.
Making a payment
You can make an accommodation fee payment online on behalf of your son or daughter:
- to pay the £200 deposit read Paying your deposit.
- to pay accommodation fees/rent read Paying your rent.
You'll need your son or daughter's Leeds student ID number to hand - the number that begins with 20. We cannot process the payment without this.
