Answering your payment queries
We understand that paying for your accommodation is quite a big deal, so we'll try to answer your questions, but the Accommodation team is always there to help, whenever you need them.
When do I have to start paying?
You’ll need to pay the full first instalment of your residence fees before or when you arrive at your accommodation.
Alternatively, if you are reliant on your Student Loan to pay your fees, you can make arrangements before you arrive to make a minimum payment of six weeks residence fees on or before the start of the Accommodation Agreement, with the balance due when you receive your Student Loan.
How do I pay?
You can pay online, via a bank transfer or in person. Find out more about residence fee payments in the Accommodation section of the student portal MyLSBU.
What is the room booking fee?
The refundable room booking fee is how we secure your place in our accommodation. Once you have paid the £400 room booking fee on receiving your accommodation offer, you're all set to start living your London Life.
The fee is refundable, which means it will be taken off your final term's invoice.
