Fees for University of Roehampton accommodation can be found on individual halls of residence pages or you can download an overview of accommodation fees (PDF) for academic year 2017/18. Fees include all utilities, internet access, contents insurance and safety testing for personal electronic goods. Before you apply for accommodation, make sure you have looked at the costs for each room type and the cost for its whole contract length. If you are a UK student and you don't know how much you will be receiving for your maintenance loan, you can use this student finance calculator to get an estimate of how much you will get: https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-calculator
Fees will vary depending on the property and locations. Roehampton Studentpad will always show current rental prices for available properties. Remember, you will need to add household bills to the rent price when budgeting your money.
On campus fees will be taken at the beginning of every term after you have received your student loan (UK student loan). If you need to organise a monthly payment plan or your loan is delayed, please contact accommodation finance.
Payment dates for the academic year 2017/18 are:
Payments for off campus fees will usually be on a fixed date each month of your tenancy although some landlords will be willing to take payments termly.
To secure your University room you will need to pay a £250 deposit within 7 days of being offered the room. Private rented accommodation deposits will usually be between 4 and 6 weeks rent.
In both instances deposits are returned within 4 weeks of the end of your contract. There can be deductions from the deposit in the event of damage caused by the student or recovery of owed rents.
Your daily living costs include rent, utility bills if off-campus, phone contract, food, books, travel and putting some money aside for savings. Balancing these with your financial support and any earnings can be difficult when first moving away from home. Information on student loans and the Student Hardship Fund is given from the Student Funding Office.
