Cost of rooms in Kingston halls of residence

How much you pay for a room in halls will depend on the length of your licence and the type of room you choose. The licence length is based on the course you study and, in some cases, on the hall where your room is based:

  • 40 week licences – Art Foundation and Undergraduate students (apart from those living at 75 Penrhyn Road). 
  • 42 to 44 week licences – PGCE students
  • 50 week licences – Nursing and Midwifery students, all Postgraduate students and all rooms at 75 Penrhyn Road

The licence covers the length of your course and examinations, plus the two short vacation periods and a period at the end of the academic year so you don't have to move out as soon as your exams have finished.

Good news – you don't have to pay a deposit for your room! Kingston University is one of the only London institutions that do not charge students hall deposits.

How to pay your halls fee

Payment by instalment

The most common way to pay halls fees is through instalments, provided you have set up a Recurring Card Payment Instruction (RCP) using an International or UK issued bank card. (Please note, if you are from the USA and will be fully funding your studies with Federal Student Loans, please do not set up an RCP as your hall fees will be deducted from your loans.)

If you do not have a RCP in place you will be required to pay the years' accommodation fees in full.

The University's halls fees instalment plan, with number of weeks' rent for each instalment, is as follows – please read the tables below to see which instalment plan you will be on:

Payment in full

If you choose to pay your halls rent in FULL, you should pay it by 14 October 2021. This payment can be made online by credit/debit card using the University's secure payment website.

If you are an international student, this payment can also be made using Kingston University's payments platform powered by our partner Western Union Business Solutions. This allows you, your parents and sponsors to pay GBP student fees in the currency of your choice and provides you with a simple and secure way to make your payment.

Please read the University's Money Matters booklets for full details.

What is a Recurring Card Payment and how is it set up?

A Recurring Card Payment Instruction (RCP) is a free and easy service that enables us to collect payments from your account automatically on the instalment dates detailed above.

You can set up a Recurring Card Payment (RCP) using either a UK or International issued bank card (but not a forex card).

If you require more information on how to set up an RCP we have created a helpful video on instalments which can be viewed in the 'Methods of Payment' section of our How to Pay Your Fees page.

Please contact the Finance Accounts Receivable team on +44 (0)20 8417 3333 if you need any help.

Remember: There must be enough money in your account to meet the payment at the time it is collected otherwise your bank may make a charge to your account for each default. If you cancel your RCP with your bank or the University, you forfeit the choice to pay by instalment and your full outstanding fee will become payable immediately. If you do not have a RCP in place you will be required to pay the years' accommodation fees in full.
