If you are a UK/EU student then your rent will be paid in three instalments that coincide with student finance - these are usually in September, January, and May. There is also a £100 deposit and £150 pre-rent instalment due in August (there is no £150 pre-payment fee for bookings through SHY). The £150 pre-rent payment covers you from the date that your contract starts until your first instalment is due. 

All EU and International students must pay 60% of their annual rent prior to their contract start date, and the remaining 40% in January. There is also the option to pay in three instalments with a UK guarantor. The exact due dates can be found on your statement. 

All semester students are required to pay their tenancy fees in full before they move into the property. If a UK guarantor is provided then payment by instalments will be accepted.  We will not take this automatically from your account so you will need to pay manually.
