Applications must be completed before midnight on 15 January 2023 to be eligible to the cashback offer. The payment will be made in December 2023, following the applicant successfully moving in and completing the first rent payment. The £200 payment will be sent to the applicants Student Finance account. If you have previously held a tenancy or licence agreement with the University, our obligation to grant you the tenancy described in your Offer will be conditional on you having paid all sums due to the University under your previous tenancy or licence agreements.
