When do I have to pay my rent?
You’ll find this information in your tenancy agreement, which you will have received and signed when you made the booking. The deadline for the first instalment of rent also depends on the date the booking was made, but will be mentioned in the contract. Alternatively, you can find the details of your payment plan by logging into your account on the landlord portal here.
How much is the rent?
This depends on what room you booked. You can find the price in the booking confirmation email you’ve received from Student.com, as well as from your tenancy agreement, and also in the landlord portal. The amount of rent you have to pay is usually listed either per week (ppw) or per month (pcm) when making the booking. However, note that the actual payments you’ll make might be a different amount, as you might pay your year’s rent for example in four instalments rather than once a week or once a month.
What is a booking fee?
A booking fee is something you may have had to pay in order to secure the booking of a room. This is paid before moving in and can be deducted from the first instalment of your rent.
How should I pay the rent?
The rent is usually paid by bank transfer, but in some cases you can also pay with a card payment.
You can find the bank details of your landlord in your tenancy agreement or the landlord portal. The rent is paid directly to the landlord, and you don’t have to pay anything to Student.com.
