This article will give more information about leaving halls of residence earlier than your contract ends and whether you still need to pay your halls fees.
When you accept the offer of a room in halls, you make a binding contract that you will live there for the agreed period.
The University ensures that students are informed of this prior to signing the agreement and taking up their room.
Students are not able to withdraw from the contract due to subsequent alterations in their personal circumstances and preferences (i.e. wanting to move into shared accommodation outside halls or changes in academic contact hours).
If you do vacate your room outside of the contract, then you are still liable for all remaining accommodation fees until the end of the agreed period.
