What happens if I can’t pay for my accommodation?
If you are struggling to pay then speak to Student Support Services and Finance as soon as possible.
What happens if I stop paying for my accommodation?
If you default on payments or fail to comply with any arrangements made for paying your accommodation fees, we may bar access to your accommodation until either payment is received in full, or an acceptable alternative payment schedule is agreed with the Finance department.
What happens if I damage College property?
Any damage caused will be charged to the individual responsible, or group of individuals in the case of communal areas. The College can use the security deposit you have paid to cover any unpaid debts that exist at the end of the academic year.
What if I want to move room?
If you wish to move room you must first discuss this with the Head of Accommodation who will consult with the Residential Support Manager and a decision will be made at their discretion. If the new room costs more, a revised invoice will be raised and the extra amount of money due will be requested to be added to any existing payment agreement. If the new room costs less, a credit for the difference will be paid back to you.
Who can come in my room?
Accommodation staff may enter your room to carry out inspections for damage, repairs and general cleanliness. Student Services staff responsible for residential accommodation may enter your room if they have reasonable cause for concern. Student Services staff responsible for residential accommodation and any other staff are, with the express permission of the Principal, permitted to carry out a search of your room if they have reasonable suspicion that stolen property, illegal substances or materials are being stored or consumed contrary to the law or College procedures.
Other designated College staff are permitted to undertake routine checks of students’ rooms for the purpose of monitoring damage and any necessary repairs as well as general hygiene.
Cleaners will enter your room on a daily basis to empty your bin and once a week to clean your room.
Can I have visitors stay in my room?
You MUST seek permission from the Residential Support Manager before anyone visits your room.
