Advanced Rent Payment

Subject to availability, Durham provides an offer of accommodation to postgraduate applicants who wish to live in our colleges.

In order to accept and secure an accommodation offer, you must pay a portion of your accommodation charges in advance. A payment of £400 Advanced Rent is required to secure the offer of accommodation, and a deadline date will be given to you within your licence agreement.

The period of occupancy that is covered by the Advanced Rent payment is calculated on a pro-rata basis depending on the overall cost of your accommodation.

The Advanced Rent payment is offset from the first instalment of the overall accommodation charge. Making the Advanced Rent payment will mean that you agree to all terms and conditions within the licence agreement provided.

Advanced Rent is a non-refundable payment. Advanced Rent is not a deposit. Please refer to our Advanced Rent Policy for further information.

Please note: Accommodation charges and occupancy periods may vary at the two recognised colleges. These are St Chad's College and St John's College.
