Payment Options


This payment is to be made by credit/debit card at the time of accepting your accommodation offer in order to fully accept your place in halls. This money is credited to the student’s residence fee account and shall be deducted from residence fees due for the complete residence period. Please note this prepayment is not a security deposit and it will not be refunded at the end of your tenancy.

Payment Methods

  • One Payment in Full: by credit/debit card payment by telephone, cheque, cash or bank transfer on or before arrival.
  • Direct Debit: 8 instalments (October - May). Please complete and return your direct debit mandate once you have accepted your offer. Your completed direct debit form should be returned to the Finance Office at least 15 working days before the first instalment date.
  • 2 Equal Instalments: first payment on or prior to arrival and the second payment in the first week of January.
  • Recurring Card Payment (RCP): 8 monthly instalments by credit/debit card from October to May. To set up a RCP using your debit/credit card you should login to the QMU Student Portal where you will see your invoice and the option to pay in instalments. Please ensure the invoiced amount excludes any payments you have already made (e.g. Prepayment of £250). If the invoice is not visible or your payments have not already been deducted, please contact the Finance Office before setting up the RCP.
