  4. Rent instalments 2023/24

    As contracts for the 2023/24 academic year have already started, part year bookings are now being accepted for a limited number of available rooms. As such, rental instalments are calculated pro-rata to fall in line with contractual obligations.

    Please speak with us for more information on payment amounts and dates should you wish to make a part-year booking.

  5. Additional (and important) rent considerations

    Please be sure to check payment dates and amounts prior to making your booking. Not all payment options fall in line with your student loan. Your student loan is not usually deposited until after you have enrolled on your course. If you have chosen to pay in full or monthly via Housing Hand, the first instalment is payable before arrival.

    The rent instalments should be paid directly to The Glassworks, please contact them for further information.  

    Accepted methods of payment are debit/ credit card or bank transfer

    Payments can be made by debit/ credit card via your Host online account

    Bank Transfers are also an accepted method of payment, however, the due amount must show in cleared funds prior to arrival.
