Student accommodation fees
Your rent account on MyEd
The Finance Channel offers access to student’s financial information through the MyEd online portal.
The Finance Channel provides details of invoices relating to both tuition and accommodation fees and charges, which are owed by either students or sponsors.
The channel allows students to view details of outstanding invoices, make payment for outstanding invoices online and view their account history.
Payments received and identified will be allocated to your student fees account normally the next working day. The student number (UUN) should be given as the reference on any payment made. Failure to do this may delay the correct identification of funds received and may cause payment reminders to be sent to you.
It is a condition of accepting your offer of accommodation that you provide the University with an approved payment method. There are several ways of paying for your accommodation depending on how your offer of accommodation is made to you.
1) Self-funded students can pay in full or by instalment
Important timescales to be aware of:
Any changes to your method of payments should be made at least 10 working days before the next payment date. To make alternative arrangements please contact the team.
If you are paying your rent by Recurring Credit Card payment, the payment may not show in the Student Finance Channel of MyEd until the 16th/17th of the month. As the payment may not show until this date, the Student Finance Channel may state that you have an overdue payment, please ignore this. If however, this message still appears after the 17th of the month, you should contact our Rent Payment team to discuss the matter.
