Utility bills and internet

On the property details page it will say if any utilities (gas, electricity, water and internet) are included in the accommodation fees. If they are not included then your bills will need to be equally split between housemates.

It is difficult to estimate the cost as it will vary depending on the season and size of the property and your usage. As a rough guide, we recommend students budget around £20 per person, per week for utility bills and internet.

When you move into your property the gas, electricity and water will all be connected. If internet is not included then you will need to arrange for the set-up of an internet connection. All internet costs and any associated phone line are the responsibility of the tenants.

For information on what to do for utilities and internet once you move in, please see the Residences Handbook.
