Pre-paid Top-up System

The College is operating a pre-paid top-up system for all students. At the start of each term your Upay account will be credited with an amount equal to the minimum spend requirement (£100) and this will be charged to the College bill issued at the start of term.

You can add money to top-up your account on the Upay website, using a debit or credit card.

Select either:

Auto top-up:  specify an amount to add automatically when your balance is low;

Manual top-up: get an alert (sms, email) when your balance is low to remind you to top-up.

Guest top-up allows a third party (such as a parent) to add money direct to your account. They just need to know your CRSid., eg. xyz123. They do not have access to your expenditure.


Refund of balances held at the end of the course

If you have any money left on your Upay account when you have completed your course at Peterhouse you are able to close your account and request a refund of the outstanding amount to the debit/credit card you have previously used to top-up. This refund is limited to £20. In the unlikely event that you have more than £20 on your account when you leave, you will need to contact the Finance Office at to request a refund.  Please see note below, under ‘Catering Charges – Undergraduates’ regarding the Minimum Spend Requirement.
