In most cases, accommodation providers will let you pay your rent in instalments, as long as you provide a guarantor. Most students pay in three instalments throughout the year, but other options may be available to you and this can be agreed with the accommodation provider after booking.
If the accommodation provider will only accept the rent upfront, we’ll flag this to you before you proceed. In any case, you only need to pay a holding deposit at the time of booking to secure your place on Housemates.
After you have made a booking on Housemates, your accommodation provider will reach out to you to arrange rental payments.
