If you are an external guest and need to pay by credit or debit card, or bank transfer, you will need to pay Flywire. You will need to use your email address to make payment and use the student number 000000000.

Using Flywire to make a casual payment you will need to select University of Bath Accommodation as the institution you want to pay.
