Book a tour


Your College fees are for tuition, welfare, most activities and accommodation only. If you have catered accommodation your meals will also be included in the costs. Please note that you will not be entitled to a refund if you miss meals.


  • During Christmas vacation, the student residences close completely and we are unable to accommodate students.
  • Students may stay in the accommodation over the half-term holidays and there is no charge. 
  • There is weekly charge for students who remain over the Easter vacation. You will need to give at least one month’s notice.

Additional finances

You will need additional finances to pay for the ongoing costs of your education. This includes expenses such as:

  • Trips
  • Books
  • Taxis
  • College Photographs

Float Account

You may either cover these costs from your personal finances, or through a ‘float account’ managed by the College. You or your parents can fund this account as necessary, and the College can then give you an agreed amount of pocket money each week. A float account is managed by the College. It’s designed to help students look after their money, and can also be used to help cover College expenses. You should have received a float account registration form from the Admissions Team. If you’d like to set up a float account, please do this before you arrive. There is a fee of £25 per term for the float account service.

Self-catered students

Self-catered students may use the cafe to purchase food and drink during the day. If you’d like to regularly eat one or more of your daily meals in the canteen, you can buy vouchers directly from the Chaucer Cafe in advance.  The Finance Officer will be able to help you with this.
