Road, Orwell Terrace or Bainfield:
Students will pay a £500 advance rent payment to accept their offer of accommodation. This is offset against the total rent cost for your tenancy from
start to finish.
If you are a Widening Participation student and believe you may have difficulties in paying the £500 advance instalment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
What happens once I apply and make £500 advance rent payment?
We aim to make 39 and 50 week students an offer of accommodation within four working days. An offer and reservation email will tell you where you will be staying, how much your rent will cost and the length of your tenancy. Within five working days of receiving this you will be expected to:
- Complete and return a guarantor form
- Complete the online induction
- Set up a payment plan (please see below)
1st and 2nd Trimester Students
We aim to start making offers for Trimester 1 students from June and Trimester 2 students in November. Please note you will not be eligible for the payment in full 2% discount.
Year 39-Week and Extended Tenancy 50-Week Tenancy
5 days 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 when making payment
to Edinburgh Napier University.
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.
indicative rent example is:
Standard en-suite room at
Bainfield for 39-week tenancy – total rent is £6,617.10
Remaining rent after £500
paid with application is £6,117.10, payable in seven instalments of £764.64,
and eighth and final instalment of £764.62
Last payment will be taken
on/around 10 May 2024.
If a student wants to end their tenancy early, residents can find suitable replacement students to take over their Tenancy Agreement, provided the replacement student is approved by Student Accommodation staff, completes the application process. The current student with an active tenancy agreement will only cease to be financially responsible for their tenancy agreement rental costs once the replacement student has moved in beyond a 4-hour cooling off period. If the replacement student cancels their tenancy agreement within the 4-hour duration the financial liability for the total tenancy agreement will remain with the current/original student.
Please follow the instructions given on the online application system. 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
