When do I have to make the payment to secure my room?
Conditional Firm Offer Holders
Once you have reserved your room, you will not need to make a payment until your offer becomes Unconditional Firm (UF). For details about when you can reserve a room, please visit our How to book accommodation webpage
Unconditional Firm (UF) Holders:
If you have booked a room in a BU Managed property - Dorchester House, Student Village, or Unilets - you will be required to pay your "Rent Instalment 1" at the time of booking to secure your room.
If you have booked a room in one of our partner halls, the accommodation provider will contact you within 5 days of you making your booking to arrange taking your payment.
