Residents pay a €500 deposit for campus accommodation for 2013-14. This deposit covers utility bills (e.g. electricity, gas) and is also a security deposit. The unused part of the deposit is returned at the end of your stay. Rent on campus is paid in two instalments, one prior to moving in and the other towards the end of January. Rates for individual halls are listed below. Your campus lease is based on 38 weeks so if you were to use an average of €10 per week in electricity and gas costs, you will use up €380 of your €500 deposit.
All payments for Rye and River Apartments are to be made online. Visa, Mastercard and Laser are accepted.
Students pay per semester. If a student leaves accommodation during the semester they will not be automatically entitled to a refund. If however, the Residence Office finds a replacement student to take over the room, the student who has left will receive a refund, less a €70 early departure fee. Please be aware that leases/agreements are signed for either one or two semesters and that students are expected to pay for the full semester if they have committed to stay that semester.
If a student cancels accommodation before the start of term in September they may incur a cancellation fee of €70.
