To make sure your name is down for the halls you want to live in you will need to make an advanced rent payment of £300, this works a little bit like a deposit and will be deducted from your final instalment of accommodation fees.

You can do this online via the login portal once you have accepted your Licence Agreement 

Your Facilities Information Hub manages the student accommodation at all campuses across the University. We will assist you if you have any problems in the accommodation or if you are experiencing any difficulties with the people you live with. We will also help you if you want to change rooms or if you have any invoice queries

Due dates for your payments will be sent out with your contract, so make sure you write them in your diary and better still budget for them!

Accommodation fees are due for payment either:

  • In advance of arrival
  • On arrival
  • On receipt of an invoice. (The dates for payments will be stated on the invoice)

Here is all the legal information that you will need to know about your £300 advanced rent payment, it might seem a bit lengthy but have a read through as you don’t want to find yourself in a sticky situation…

In conjunction with the terms of the Accommodation Licence Agreement, deductions can be taken from the advanced rent payment. 

This is with reference to clauses;

7.5          You may only otherwise terminate this Licence Agreement during the Residential Year having received the University’s written consent to do so.  To make an application to terminate under this clause 7.5, you will need to submit a completed Request for Cancellation of Accommodation form to the Accommodation Office which will then be considered by the University. 

7.6          If You are terminating because You are withdrawing / taking a leave of absence or transferring courses, then written confirmation of this from the appropriate school must be provided to Accommodation Hub Office before they can consider any refund or cancellation of payment obligations.  

7.7          In all cases, where You wish to exercise Your right to terminate, You acknowledge that, save where You are terminating for reasons specified in clause 7.3(a) and (b), You will continue to be liable for the full Licence Fee unless the University or You are/are able to find a replacement person to take on the outstanding liability for these amounts.

With the exception of visa refusals or you not obtaining a place on a course at the University of Wolverhampton you will not receive a full refund of your Licence Fee. (Written confirmation of this refusal will be required from UCAS or the University of Wolverhampton.)

What Happens If The University Does Not Offer You A Place On A Course?

If you apply for accommodation, and then accept a place within the University Accommodation, but then the University of Wolverhampton decide not to offer you a place on a course, the whole advanced rent payment of £300.00 will be returned to you, as per clause 4.4.

Once you have applied for your accommodation (via post, email or online) and your application has been approved, you enter into a licence agreement with the University. This means that a room has been reserved for you. 

The licence is now governed by the Consumer Regulations (June 2014), which states that the University accommodation contracts are not a contract to which the “cooling off” cancellation period applies.  Details of what this means to you, can be found with The Consumer Contracts Regulation link below:

What Happens to Your Advanced Rent Payment?

If you are applying to live within University Accommodation and you will not be 18 when you arrive at Uni, there’s a couple of things you need to do to make sure you get a place in halls:

Firstly have a read through the Under 18's Policy (PDF 254K, Downloads file)

Then complete the Applying for halls under 18s guarantor form (PDF 66K, Downloads file)  before your accommodation can be secured.

The guarantor form covers the financial side of things and will need to be completed by a parent/guardian. 

The guarantor form/required documents will need to be returned to The Accommodation Hub asap so we can process your application, get all the admin side sorted and you can get set for life at uni.

If you are under 18 you automatically get allocated en suite accommodation – you might see this as a super bonus! But if you would prefer standard or economy to save some cash you can apply to move rooms once you’ve turned 18.

If you have any queries or questions please feel free to get in touch with Sharon Jones, the Senior Hub Manager at The City Accommodation Hub.
