Direct Debit

A Direct Debit instruction authorises the University to take money directly from your bank account. A Direct Debit can only be set up from a UK bank account. Some accounts do not permit Direct Debits, please check with your bank if you are unsure before you set up.

The University will notify you by letter or email 10 working days in advance of the first collection being made. This Advance Notice letter will detail the exact dates and amounts of the Direct Debit instalments that we will take from your account. Please retain this Advance Notice letter for your records. Direct Debits are usually taken mid-month and, for accommodation, are taken in a maximum of 7 instalments from October - April.

If you are not the account holder, you will not be able to set up a Direct Debit online. In these circumstances you will need to download a paper direct debit form from the Direct Debit pages in MyCampus. The account holder will then need to fill out and sign this paper Direct Debit form and email this to mycampus-fees@glasgow.ac.uk (please do not send via post, as due to COVID19, our Finance staff are working from home).

If you wish to cancel your Direct Debit please do so by notifying your bank and email the Accounts Receivable Team at mycampus-fees@glasgow.ac.uk to inform them of the cancellation 

If you cancel your Direct Debit instruction any balance of fees still outstanding will become payable in full, immediately.

Manual Instalment Plans

You can opt to pay your accommodation charges by a manual instalment plan. The due date for these is 30th of each month from September - March. You are responsible for making the payments each month and can pay an instalment online, by card, or by bank transfer (using your student number as the reference) ensuring payment is received by the University by the due date (30th of the Month).

If you wish to cancel your manual instalment plan please email the Student Collections' Team at finance-student@glasgow.ac.uk

If you cancel your manual instalment plan any balance of fees still outstanding will become payable in full, immediately.

You can opt to pay your accommodation charges by an agreed payment plan.  You can decide the monthly due date that suits you best. The final instalment must be received no later than 14th April. You are responsible for making the payments each month and can pay an instalment online, by card, or by bank transfer (using your student number as the reference) ensuring payment is received by the University by the due date.

If you cancel your manual instalment plan any balance of fees still outstanding will become payable in full immediately. 

If you select a monthly payment plan (Direct Debt/Manual Instalment Plan/Agreed Payment Plan) and miss 2 instalments within the Term: 1) we will cancel the payment plan and the full balance of the remaining fees will become due in full immediately  2)  you will not be able to reinstate a monthly payment plan that Term.
