How to pay
Recurring Card Payments
This is our preferred method of payment as payments are automatically taken from your registered credit or debit card. Your card details are entered into our secure system when accepting your accommodation offer on RoomOnline. The system accepts all major credit/debit cards, except Visa Electron and Maestro. Please note that our recurring card payment system is a separate secure system from the rent advance payment system, so you need to enter your details again.
If you subsequently need to update the bank card details you have registered for this service, please complete and return by email the Recurring Card Payments Form (DOC 43KB) form to email@example.com or call Accommodation Finance on +44 (0) 1224 263017.
You can make payment online through RGyoU (Log in and click the My Finance tab, then “Make a payment”). This system accepts all major credit/debit cards but is only available once you have enrolled as a student at RGU.
If you are non UK student, you may prefer to pay through Global Pay. Global Pay is powered by our partner Western Union Business Solutions and is available in 37 different currencies with no transaction charges and reduced bank fees.
Pay in person
You can also pay in person at the Student Help Point, Level 3 of the Faculty of Health and Social Care building on the campus. Cash, credit and debit cards (except American Express) are accepted.
