How many instalment will I have?

Typically at DIGS you will have 3 rent instalments, which are usually in October, January and April and usually coincide with Student Finance. There is also a deposit of £100 and a smaller pre-rent payment of £150 to pay in August. The exact date can be found on your statement.

International student?

If you are an international student then you will need to pay the full rental amount 30 days prior to moving in. However, if you have a UK guarantor you can also pay in instalments. If you cannot pay the full rental amount and do not have a UK guarantor you can get in touch with Housing Hand to see how they can help.
