Paying your rent

You can choose a variety of ways to pay your rent. We offer a range of plans to suit you.

If you rely on your student loan to pay your accommodation fees, we suggest you might want to pay in 3 x termly instalments. However, please be aware that if your student loan is late or does not arrive, the University cannot accept this as a valid reason for late payment.

If you are an international student who plans to open a bank account on your arrival in the UK, you can set up your instalment plan once you have received your new bank details. Please note that you must set up your instalment plan before the 19th October 2021 (15th February 2022 for Semester 2 and January arrivals). After this date, you will no longer be able to pay in instalments and will have to pay your full fees immediately.

If you think you are entitled to Leeds Bursary and you intend to take this as an accommodation discount, read more about next steps in choosing your bursary support

Set up an instalment plan

Once you have chosen a payment option, complete the online instalment plan form. This is open from 19th July 2021 to 19th October 2021 (tbc for Semester 2 arrivals), but you must still accept your contract and pay the deposit within the 4 day deadline. You can pay your instalments by either Direct Debit or automated Credit/Debit card.

If you want to pay by Direct Debit, you must have a UK bank account that accepts direct debits to select this option. Be sure you understand about charges and payment dates.

There are no additional charges for automatic payment by debit/credit card. 

If you provide invalid card/account details or cancel your direct debit, your instalment plan will be cancelled. This means that the full accommodation fee must be paid immediately and you may incur late payment interest charges.

Note: If you do not select an online instalment plan your accommodation fees are payable in full, immediately.

Your accommodation statement

A statement will be sent to your University email address (usually late October) showing the amount due. Payment must be made on or before the due dates by one of the payment methods below.

Payment in full at beginning of tenancy by manual payment

If you choose to pay your accommodation fees in full, payment must be made on or before the due date of 1st November 2021 (1st March 2022 for Semester 2 arrivals). Payment in full can be made using one of the manual payment methods outlined below.
