Fees, finance & housing

You will need to make arrangements to pay for your course and living costs such as accommodation, open a bank account, make sure you are aware of other costs such as council tax and plan a budget.

  • The easiest way to pay your tuition or accommodation fees is online. If you are a continuing student please consult the complete list of fees so you can check what you have to pay to the university. For your latest accommodation fees, please email
  • Have any questions or concerns? Speak to our Student Engagement Team by emailing  or by phoning +44 (0) 24 7765 6565, and they will direct you to the correct person in our Finance team. To set up a payment plan for your accommodation fees, phone FutureLets on +44 (0) 24 76 158 158.
  • After you have re-enrolled, log in to the Student Portal and access NOVA to generate a letter to prove your student status. You may need this if you want to open a student bank account, apply for council tax exemption, or provide proof of your course details.

Want to know more about course fees, payment plans, scholarships, loans and other sources of financial help? Check our Student Portal Finance site and tuition fee terms and conditions. Coventry University Students’ Union (CUSU) also provide useful information on managing your money should you need it.


If you have already received and accepted an offer for university-owned accommodation, information on your next steps, including how to collect your key, is available on our accommodation web pages. Don’t forget that your accommodation is not secured until you have accepted your offer, paid the deposit and selected a payment plan.

If you are staying in university-owned accommodation, make sure you read the FutureLets Licence to Occupy. If you have booked a property in the private sector through FutureLets, contact us at for key collection details.

If you still need to arrange accommodation, contact our Customer Service Representatives, who are happy to talk you through the options available.
