Rent & financial Information

If you have been allocated Edinburgh Napier University Accommodation at Slateford Road, Orwell Terrace or Bainfield:

All Students will pay a £500 advance rent payment when applying for student accommodation. This is offset against the total rent cost for your tenancy from start to finish.

1 Trimester Students: 5 Day after receiving your reservation email you are expected to make payment upfront in full due to the short duration of your tenancy. Please note you will not be eligible for the payment in full 2% discount.

Full Academic Year 39 Week & Extended Tenancy 50 Week Tenancy: 5 Day after receiving your reservation email you are expected to set up a Recurring Card Payment (Monthly Instalments) or make payment in full with a 2% discount that you should deduct when making payment to ENU.

Please consult the rent calculator below.  Please note monthly payments are not worked out by multiplying the weekly cost x 4/5 weeks. We work out your total rent cost for the full duration of your stay by dividing the weekly cost by 7 to gain the daily cost and then multiplying the daily cost by the number of days in your tenancy. 

An indicative rent example is:

  • Standard en suite room at Bainfield for 39-week tenancy – total rent is £5677.28
  • Remaining rent after £500 paid with application is £5177.28, payable in seven instalments of £647.16, and eighth and final  instalment of £647.16
  • Last payment will be taken on/around 10th May 2019.

Recurring Card Payments - Please follow the instructions detailed on your reservation email and below. If you are staying from September to June you will be expected to make eight payments, and if you are staying from September to August you will be expected to make 10 payments.  Your first rental payment will be deducted around 10 October and monthly thereafter.
