All other payments are collected by BGU's Student Accounts Division together with tuition fees on the tuition due dates. Students paying rent for one year in advance by October 2 of the same academic year will receive a 2.5% discount. For more details - after making the advance rent payment and after receiving notice of assignment to the dormitories - please contact the Student Accounts Division.

Rent - The rent is updated each year and/or any other period to be determined by BGU. Method of calculation: The monthly rent multiplied by 12 months a year, divided by 365 days a year. The rent is based on a daily charge, so that in a 28-day month the rent will be multiplied by 28 days, and in other months the rent should be multiplied by the number of days in that month.
Gas utilities - The rent includes a reasonable gas consumption.
Electricity utilities - An electricity meter reading is periodically taken in each apartment, and the charge is divided among the residents of that apartment relative to the number of days of their residence.
Water utilities - Each resident is charged NIS 40 a month.
Method of calculation: NIS 40 a month multiplied by 12 months a year, divided by 365 days a year. This totals about NIS 1.3 per day.
The charge is on a daily basis, so that in a 28-day month the water bill will be 28 days multiplied by NIS 1.3, and in other months the water utility bill is multiplied by the number of days in that month.
Guard/security fees - The payment is divided into two parts: The fist bill in the academic year will charge about 80% of the guarding fee and the rest will be charged in May.
Municipal property tax - BGU bears the fee.
