How To Pay Your Accommodation Fees

You can pay for your accommodation in either 1 instalment at the start of the year or 3 separate instalments throughout the year. 

How much will my accommodation cost?

For convenience we recommend paying in 3 instalments, as this will coincide with you receiving your student loan payments.

If you choose to pay in 3 instalments, the due dates for 2014/15 are:

1st Instalment 10 October 2014                 
2nd Instalment 13 January 2015
3rd Instalment 24 April 2015

Paying at Enrolment

As part of the enrolment process, you will be prompted to set up an accommodation direct debit or set up a Recurring Card Payment (RCP) credit/debit card in instalments.

We strongly recommend that you do this, as the payment is entirely automatic and one less thing for you to worry about throughout the year. 

If you do not have the necessary funds available in your account to cover the amount being collected on the dates above, please contact the Finance Office in advance.

Failure to pay your fees on time may lead to administration charges being incurred.


Direct Debit

A Direct Debit will take money from a nominated bank account.  You will need to know your Account Number (this is not the same as your Card Number) and your Sort Code.


Recurring Card Payment (RCP)

A RCP will take money from your nominated credit/debit card. You will need your student number and date of birth (student) and you can make the payment via our epayments page.


If you are unable to pay online please contact the Finance Office and arrange to pay by one of the methods listed in the section below.


Other ways to pay

Even though we suggest you pay online, you can instead pay in person at the Finance Office or by card over the telephone.  The Finance Office is located on the First Floor of New Wing.

If paying in person, we encourage you to do so well in advance, as queues can be excessive close to the fee deadlines.


Credit / Debit Card

You can make a payment by card via our epayments page. We accept payments by both Credit and Debit Cards at the Finance Office or by telephone.

If another person is arranging to make a telephone payment for you (e.g. a parent), please ensure they are aware of your student number, date of birth and the amount they need to pay.  Due to data protection we are unable to discuss details of your account with a third party without your permission.



Payments by cheque can be made in person at the Finance Office or by post to:

The Finance Department, York St John University, Lord Mayors Walk, York YO31 7EX

Please make cheques payable to York St John University.  Please ensure your student number is written on the reverse of the cheque.



Payment by cash can be made in person at the Finance Office.  Please do not send cash through the post.
