Ways to pay

We have a variety of payment methods and payment timelines so that you can effectively manage your Leeds student accommodation with your student budget. You can pay the rent in full, or in three or seven instalments.

Our accommodation includes all bills, leaving no additional costs or hassle of separate bill payments.

You can pay through:

Although a deposit isn’t needed, you may be required to give advance rent - a piece of the full-year amount which will be discounted off the full price when you pay.

Please note that you’ll need a guarantor to book with us. A guarantor is a person (ideally family/guardian) who can ensure that the rent is paid in full if you’re unable to pay for any reason.

Direct debit

The most convenient way to pay, direct debit automatically deducts rental payments from your bank account.

Pay by card

Pay the full rental amount or an instalment-based plan on Leeds student accommodation via a debit or credit card. We accept Visa, Visa electron, Mastercard and Maestro.


As a Chinese student, you can use the UnionPay method if you can’t pay by direct debit.
