This is a DMU-managed hall and payments are on more flexible terms than those offered by some private providers. You will be able to use your student loan to pay your rent, as instalments are due after you have received it.

There are no payment surcharges. We operate an online payment system. Payments can also be made by cash, cheque, credit or debit card, banker’s draft and bank transfer.
