You’ll sign a contract with us when you accept a room in our halls of residence.
We offer three different contract lengths: 38 week, 40 week or 51 weeks. Some contract lengths are only available for certain rooms or halls. Your contract options will be shown to you when you apply for accommodation.
Our contract dates for 2023-24 are:
- 38 week – 23 September 2023 to 15 June 2024 (266 days in total)
- 40 week – 23 September 2023 to 1 July 2024 (282 days in total)
- 51 week – 23 September 2023 to 14 September 2024 (357 days in total)
Pro-rated costs for total number of days
Please be aware that the actual contract lengths in days are shown above and will be charged for on a pro-rated basis for partial weeks.
For example, our 40 week contract is 282 days. Therefore, a standard en suite room in Wessex Lane would cost £171.71 per week, divided by 7 days = £24.53 per day, multiplied by 282 days = £6,917.46.
Most undergraduates need a 38 or 40 week contract, and most postgraduates need a 51 week contract. You cannot change to a shorter contract after you accept your accommodation offer. You can book summer accommodation with us if you need to stay longer.
