Accommodation Costs

Student's Accommodation on Campus - Fees for 2022/23 (per week)

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 creditcontrol@worc.ac.uk

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

Laundry costs are £2.60 for a wash and £1.30 for a tumble dry through a laundry card (prices from 2021-22).

University Managed House

In addition to halls accommodation, the University also manages a small number of student shared properties close by. These all offer a good standard of accommodation at a competitive price. Free gym membership and contents insurance is also included in the cost of your rent (click link to left of this page "Living in a University Managed House" for more information).

Private Rented Accommodation

If you move to privately rented accommodation in your second year, you can expect to pay an average of £90-£120 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.

Deposit
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), Tenancy Deposit Scheme run by the Dispute Service Limited (TDS) and (at the same time) 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.

Studentpad

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