Managed Partnerships

The payment options for Managed Partnership accommodation are different to those for University-Managed.


UK students need to give details of a guarantor for all Managed Partnership accommodation. This has to be a UK resident and is usually your parent or guardian.

Your guarantor is someone who promises to take care of your rent payments, or other costs, if you're unable to. 

If you're an international student, you don't have to name a guarantor but your payment options might be more limited.

We have this system in place to protect us in the unlikely event that you don't keep up with your payments or cause any damage.

Your guarantor will be emailed a document to sign and return. Make sure you have the permission of your guarantor before you sign them up for this.

Payment options 2021-22

All rent payments will be paid direct to your accommodation provider and not the University. Details of payment options available is detailed below for each Managed-Partnership scheme.
