"If a student is facing financial hardship and is unable to pay the £500 advance rent payment, they may be eligible for support via SMART’s Halls Guarantor Scheme. Please note that we are only able to offer this to New UEL Students who are UK or EU students.
The Halls Guarantor Scheme is not a loan, but an agreement to postpone the £500 advance rent payment. The £500 will be split equally into the student’s instalment plan when they are setting up their payment plan for 2023-24. Students must pay the £250 deposit to be considered for this scheme. .
If a student is unable to make the £500 payment and would like more information on the SMART’s Halls Guarantor Scheme, please contact us.
Please note this option is not available for Term 2 tenancies.
