Financial assistance is available for students that can help to pay some of the accommodation fees. This help is means tested and based on household income. For more information please follow this link: https://www.askham-bryan.ac.uk/students/student-finance/financial-help.

Payments

At the point of applying for accommodation you must pay a refundable Security Deposit of £300 which is in addition to the Accommodation Fee. For the avoidance of doubt, the Security Deposit is taken as security against any damage by you/any visitors to your accommodation and to cover any shortfall that may arise in respect of your Accommodation Fee and is not a Holding Deposit as defined by section 3, Schedule 1 of the Tenant Fees Act 2019.  If you are a returning student who has previously paid a Bond, this will be carried over from the current year.

Your accommodation fee will then be split into 9 equal installments; the first installment will be due on or before 21st August 2020, keys will not be released unless payment has been made. You can pay online by following this link https://store.askham-bryan.ac.uk ,  by cheque or by cash at the Finance Office, York. The remaining 8 installments can then be paid by Direct Debit from October to May.

Ways to Pay

Students can pay the accommodation fee in one of two ways:

Total amount in advance

Or

9 equal installments: First to be made before 21st August 2020 and remaining 8 installments then paid by Direct Debit from October to May.

By signing the accommodation agreement the student or parent / guardian/ guarantor undertakes to pay the published charges for accommodation, it is therefore important to read the terms and conditions of the agreement before signing it.  For those struggling to pay the full accommodation fee there are Residential Grants and Scholarships available which are assessed on a combination of household income and student ability, for details please see the Scholarships page or call Student Support Services on 01904 772201 and ask to speak to the Student Finance and Welfare Officer for more information.
