Paying for accommodation
To secure a room a £200 deposit will need to be paid within seven days of application. A further payment of two weeks’ rent is payable to confirm the room but this is not required until results are confirmed and the applicant knows they are definitely coming to Salford.
The typical contract duration for undergraduate students is 42 weeks and this payment of two weeks’ rent is deducted from the total amount required.
The remaining 40 weeks’ payment is payable in three termly instalments due in October, February and April – these payments fall in line with the maintenance loan release dates.
If your son or daughter does not meet the conditions of their offer and will not be coming to Salford, the deposit will be refunded.
