Rent is calculated per night.  For months with less than 31 days the rent will be charged for the number of days in that month. In the UK a tax called VAT (Value Added Tax) is levied on all goods and services.   This tax is currently 20%.   In the case of accommodation fees, VAT is levied at the normal 20% for first 28 nights of your stay and then reduced to 4% until the end of your stay. The rents above include 4% VAT.   Please note that accommodation fees including 20% VAT will have already been paid by you as part of your initial payment (security deposit).   As a student you are not eligible to reclaim VAT.

Our charges cover heating, hot water, internet access and much more. Many of our communal facilities are free for Members, including regular 'dining-in nights' to lectures, sports and social nights. There's so much available as part of the Goodenough experience!

  • Free wi-fi throughout the private rooms and flats and the public areas of the College.
  • An in-house maintenance team to sort out any problems in your room or flat as soon as possible.
  • 24 hour Reception Teams.
  • Secure, free bike storage.
  • 24 hour libraries
  • Contents insurance for your room or flat
  • Invitations to black-tie dinners and free regular College communal dining-in events
  • 15% discount on food in the Great Hall and Freddies
  • Music rooms
  • Discounted gym membership and subsidised tennis court
  • Free or subsidised social, cultural and academic events
  • Weekly linen and cleaning for those in single rooms 

Advance payment charges

You will be required to pay:

  • A deposit of £400 in single or double rooms, £750 in studios and flats. This is to cover damage and will be returned when you leave with any deductions made for damage or breakages.
  • An advanced payment equal to 28 days rent on your allocated room type at the VAT rate of 20%.   This is credited to your accommodation bill once you have arrived.
  • A non-returnable administration fee of £100.

 

Council Tax

Council Tax is payable on all self contained studios and flats, that is, those with a kitchen.   Council Tax is a personal local authority tax paid to Camden Council and this money is used to pay for local services such as schools, rubbish collection, roads and street lighting.    Each domestic property is liable for this tax irrespective of whether you are a temporary or permanent resident.   You may be liable for full or partial exemption and you will need to assess your family situation and provide the relevant proof to Camden, after receiving a bill, to gain the exemption.    This website gives excellent clear advice about Council Tax and exemptions.

The Council Tax amount for each property varies according to value, size and location.     The rates for College flats and studios are likely to be between £1,417.46 and £2,047.44 per annum and include an additional £150-£200 Garden levy.

Scholarships

A number of Entry Scholarships are available to help Members pay their rental fees. Please see our Scholarships page for full details.
