Additional rent considerations
Instalments might not coincide with your Student Finance England payments. It is your responsibility to ensure monies for rent are cleared upon the date due.
Payments can be made by debit card or credit card, via the Host housing portal (credit cards are subject to a two per cent surcharge being added at point of sale). Bank transfers are also accepted, but the due amount must show in cleared funds prior to arrival. Instalments should be paid directly to Victoria Hall Management UK Ltd.
