Residence fees 2023/24

UK RPI (all items) which is the main measure we use to set the rents, was at the time of setting the rents in September 2023 8.5%. To support this below RPI increase, RBS has been asked to consider some changes to services. Housekeeping arrangements in traditional halls will change from September 2024, staff will clean shared bathrooms and kitchens (unless they are part of a flat) as well as corridors and other public areas.  Bedrooms will not be cleaned and students will be responsible for disposing of rubbish and recycling.  In line with ensuite accommodation, monthly cleanliness and safety checks will be carried out.

Rooms will be offered on a 38 week contact 7th September 2024 until 31st May 2025.  You will get the opportunity to apply for summer accommodation. Details will be provided nearer the time.
