Corpus Christi College University of Cambridge

Financial Arrangements

Your offer letter from the University will have outlined on what basis your University Composition Fee (UCF) has been calculated. This will have classified you as either a 'Home/EU' student, or an 'Overseas' student.

The College collects the UCF on behalf of both the University and College. If your UCF is being paid by somebody else (including the University), please confirm this in writing with us if you have not already done so. If you are personally liable for the payment of the UCF, please note that failure to pay in due time may result in your not being allowed to continue your studies or receive your degree.

College bills are sent out at the beginning of each term and at the end of your course.

  • the University Composition Fee (if you are privately funded you will be invoiced for the entire year's UCF in your first bill)
  • £30 deposit for a set of keys (in your first bill)
  • Any charges incurred the previous term for meals, the use of electricity in your room (usually a small amount), photocopying, printing, purchases from the MCR fridge/snack bar, hire of camp beds, booking of guest rooms, etc.

Students living in college accommodation will also be billed for:

  • Rent in advance for one quarter (plus a £150 room deposit or £400 flat deposit in your first bill)
  • Kitchen Fixed Charge (for 2016/17: £167 per term & £83.50 for summer)
  • Utilities (for 2016/17: £12.16 per week while the heating is on from September to April)

Your College bill will include details on how to pay. Please contact the Finance Office if you have any queries about payment.

If you encounter any financial problems it is important that you contact your Graduate Tutor so that solutions may be found at an early stage.
