Paying your deposit

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

We will return your deposit at the end of your stay if you have paid all your rent, not caused any damage and not incurred any administration charges. 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 are subject to exchange rate fluctuations.

Payment by card

The easiest, fastest and most secure way to pay your accommodation deposit is by using our secure online payment facility. Funds will register on your student account almost immediately.

You can also contact us on 0370 1200 189 to pay over the telephone, or you can come to Accommodation Services, Student Services Centre in the Ziff Building and pay with your card at our counter. 

Payment by Flywire

If you are an international student, you can make payment in your local currency via Flywire.

Flywire allows you to: 

  • Pay in over 70 currencies
  • Pay by bank transfer, international credit/debit card
  • Eliminate bank fees and enjoy excellent exchange rates
  • Track your payment from start to finish
  • Pay from any country and any bank

Payment directly into the University bank account (bank transfer)

You can pay by bank transfer. If you are paying by international bank transfer please note that it can take several weeks for the funds to reach us and you may be charged bank fees by both your bank and the receiving UK bank. This may mean that we receive less than the required £200.

When making payment direct to the University bank account you must quote your name and your student ID number.
