Halls Fees (1112P3)

Status: Lapsed | Zone: Student Communities

Passed: 04/02/2014 | Lapsed: 01/07/2022

This policy was discussed at the following meetings:

  • Currently, University of Southampton Halls of Residence fees are split into 3 instalments, corresponding with the 3 payment dates for student loans
  • Many students living in Halls do not receive a loan, but are awarded monthly bursaries e.g. Nurses/Physiotherapists/Other sponsorships
  • This can lead to financial distress around the payment dates
  • This is unfair to any students whose studies are funded in any way other than via the Student Loans Company, especially members of the Faculty of Health Sciences.
  • SUSU and the University should support those who would benefit from a monthly payment scheme.
  • To liaise with University Accommodation Services to provide a monthly payment scheme for any student that would wish to pay in this manner
    Sorry, there are no Mandates for this policy
