College member has an account with the College known as ‘battels’ where all personal costs incurred at Wolfson are added to a running total.
Each month, battels bills which include accommodation, food and other items is emailed to each member, and must be paid by the due date specified on the battels statement.
Currently battels may be paid using your own internet banking facilities, online through the Wolfson College Gateway or by bank transfer. Alternatively you may call in at the Accounts Office to pay by cheque, cash or debit/credit card or telephone the Accounts Office to pay by debit/credit card. On all payments, it is very important that you quote your College battels number including the status prefix (eg GS12345) and your surname as the reference so we can identify your payment when it reaches our bank account and apply it to your battels account.
Please note that:
- if you are late paying your battels, your ability to charge costs to your battels will be withdrawn until at least one month after all debts have been cleared. An administrative fee will be added to your outstanding battels account to meet the costs of administering the withdrawal of credit.
- it is a breach of College regulations to be in debt to the College, and any failure to pay bills on time can result in a disciplinary hearing with the Vicegerent, with the potential of being banned from the College.
All accommodation is paid each month in advance. If you do not pay your accommodation bill by the due date, you will be issued with a notice to vacate the accommodation in accordance with the terms of your accommodation contract. You may prejudice your chances of obtaining accommodation again in the future, should you fall into arrears at any time.
Students who are unable to meet the costs of being at the College will usually be advised to discuss the possibility of a suspension of status with their Department, with a view to returning at a later date once finances are back in order. Experience has shown that it is in the best interest of the student, to avoid debts building up, to explore this option as soon as they find themselves unable to meet their financial commitments. Please note that final decisions on applications for suspension of status are made by the relevant Department and/or Division, not the College.
