Accommodation Costs

Most students pay for 39 weeks but those taking longer courses, such as nursing or teaching, pay for the length of the course.

A damage deposit of £300 will be required in advance and you will be able to pay your accommodation fees in six instalments from October to March or three instalments in October, January and April. If you have any queries about making payments you should contact the University’s Finance Office by emailing

All fees include broadband internet access, gas, electricity, water, contents insurance and gym membership. All the prices listed are for self-catered accommodation.

University Managed House

The University also manages a wide range of student shared properties just a short walk from either the St John’s or City Campus. If you are allocated to one of these properties, the University will be your landlord, and will therefore be responsible for dealing with any maintenance issues. Free internet is provided. Gas, electric and water bills are included in the rent.

Private Rented Accommodation

If you move to privately rented accommodation in your second year, you can expect to pay an average of £110-£150 per week for a room in a shared house, plus bills. As a student off campus you still have access to the same facilities as students living on campus, including the support of the Accommodation Team and Student Experience Team to help you with any queries that might arise.

Please remember agreement lengths, deposit amounts and arrangements for paying bills vary from property to property. Take advice from the Accommodation Team if you are unsure about any of these important details.

You will be expected to pay a deposit of about £300 which landlords must protect using one of the three Tenancy Deposit schemes: Deposit Protection Service, MyDeposits (including deposits that were held by Capita) and Tenancy Deposit Scheme. At the same time, you will need to pay at least £300 to retain your room during the summer. REMEMBER TO PUT MONEY ASIDE EARLY FOR THESE COSTS.

At the beginning of your tenancy make a photographic record of the condition of your accommodation and then at the end, to prove the condition in which you left it.


The University's Accommodation Team hold a Housing Fair in January and following this they advertise all Worcester City Licenced properties on Studentpad.
