Student Accounts

**Please be aware that students are currently being targeted by a phishing e-mail purporting to be from the Finance Department in which they are being asked to provide their bank account details via a 'Grant Information' link.

This is not a genuine e-mail and we ask that students do not click on the link if they receive this.

Any students wishing to pay outstanding tuition or accommodation fees should do so through their Sussex Direct account. Alternatively, please see our 'Tuition Fees, How and When Do I Pay' section and 'Accommodation, How Do I Pay' section for more information. **

The Student Accounts office administer all payments for tuition fees, accommodation fees and other ancillary items, such as bedding and catering packs. We ensure your student account is maintained and updated with any changes during the course of your studies.

From the initial registration process at the beginning of the academic year, we work closely with other departments to ensure accounts are regularly adjusted to reflect any changes in tuition or rent charges. We also update payment and sponsor information, and provide financial information where requested.

Our office is open to in-person callers between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. We also have a dedicated helpline which is open weekdays between 10am to 1pm, and 2pm to 4pm (Our helpline number is 0800 849 4979). When calling it is useful if you can have your student registration number (or applicant number for new students) to hand, to help us to assist you with your enquiry. 

Please select from the appropriate pages for information on specific topics. Included within our web pages there are a number of useful links to other departments and organisations to help provide you with more detailed information.
