Advanced rent payments 


Durham provides an offer of accommodation to all first-year undergraduate applicants who wish to live in our colleges. 


In order to accept and secure an accommodation offer, you must pay a portion of your accommodation charges in advance. A payment of £200 Advanced Rent is required to secure the offer of accommodation, and a deadline date will be given to you within your licence agreement. 


You will only need to make the advanced rent payment once you receive an accommodation offer from us. You won't be asked to make the payment prior to results day. Once your allocation is confirmed you will then receive an accommodation offer. 

The advanced rent payment would be made to secure the accommodation being offered and this could be in college or college-managed accommodation. Advanced Rent is a non-refundable payment and is not a deposit.


Please refer to our Advanced Rent Policy for further information.
