(Note that we are currently working to review the structure of the bill, so this may change at some point)

Tuition Fees – These will only appear on the bill if neither of the following apply:

  • You have taken out a tuition fee loan from any of the UK Student Finance organisations this.
  • Your fees are to be paid by any other sponsor or by scholarship, the College will invoice them directly.

Room rent – Rent includes heating, lighting, electricity and water, plus computer connection and data allowance, a basic level of personal possessions insurance and weekly cleaning.

Kitchen fixed charge (KFC) – Eating together is a central part of the academic community life of the College. To support it, the College maintains extensive facilities and professional staff to ensure it is capable of providing meals to members of the College and their guests on a day to day basis and on special occasions. The KFC is a contribution to the overhead costs of the College catering operation and helps the College maintain student meal prices at affordable levels.

Linen hire – Bed linen (sheets and pillowcases) and duvet may be hired from the College. Towels are not provided. To hire linen please complete an online form and return it before the start of the academic year.

Laundry Charge – A weekly charge is added to the College bill of all students living in College owned accommodation and allows for unlimited use of the machines.

Fitzwilliam deposit – A deposit is charged in the first bill and will be returned shortly after the end of the final term, less deductions for any unpaid charges. These may include charges for any dilapidations in the room which are not considered by the College to be normal ‘wear and tear’.

Accident transport fund – This fund is run in co-operation with the Junior Members Association (JMA) and Panther Taxis. All students contribute to the fund which provides for emergency travel needs or for when injury or serious illness prevents independent travel between Fitzwilliam College and departments of the University.
