What do I have to pay upfront?
Go Canterbury students pay the same initial fees as standard University Hall students prior to confirmation. Your first rental fee payment is due prior to arrival as well.
Can I pay once I arrive?
It is a requirement that all residents at UC Accommodation pay their initial fees plus their first payment of their accommodation, prior to arrival.
What if I cannot pay prior to arrival?
Please contact the accommodation team with these concerns at least one month prior to arrival, we will do our best to organise an alternative schedule for you.
What If my arrival or departure dates are different to the set dates?
Early/Late Arrival - If you’re arriving after your scheduled check in date, that is fine – just let us know when we should expect to see you. If you plan on arriving earlier than the contract states, you will need some form of casual short term accommodation. We do provide short term accommodation so please contact us directly to discuss your requirements.
Early/Late Departure – If you plan on leaving earlier than your contract states please contact the office and speak to the staff who will be able to advise on the process of departure depending on the date you wish to leave. If you’re planning on staying longer than the contract states, please also contact the office and speak to the staff about your options.
Can I arrive at the village without a confirmed booking?
No, we require all new and returning residents to have a valid application and contract with us to move in. Please do not arrive to UC Accommodation unless you have received your confirmation, as you will not be able to check in.
