Sent me an email saying I have a fine for locking myself out of the room. The fine is five pounds and they are demanding it is paid by a set date. To be fair I have paid enough of their ******* fines and I don't want to pay this. In fact they owe me money.

What can they do if I do not settle this?

Fines for locking yourself out the room???? Wow, your uni doesn't mess about lol.
If they owe you money then just tell them to take it out of that, shouldn't be a problem.

You are the one that signed the contract.

It will take someones time to unlock your room or sort it out etc. Time = Money.

Be careful about not paying them, they can be *******s. Lots of folks graduating same time as me had thier results witheld until they paid all monies the uni deemed they owed!

Yep, if you don't pay you will be in debt to the uni and they will not award your degree. A £5 fine or £9,000 tuition fees? Seems a pretty easy choice to me.
It might seem harsh to fine you for locking yourself out, but imagine if everybody just went out without their keys all the time. The security staff would be running round opening doors all day and night. The fine is designed to make you take more care and take responsibility for yourself.

Hell of a lot cheaper that calling out a locksmith when you have your own place and don't have security running around with keys. Be thankful.

The doors automatically close and lock. This is not a normal door you are thinking of.

That is still a pretty standard type of lock.

The previous posters point still stands that if you weren't in halls, you will most likely be calling out a locksmith!

It's only £5 and you're the one that made a mistake, just pay it and don't **** up in future.

Sorry, I didn't realise you came here for sympathy.

You are in the wrong, pay the fine.

Or don't pay the fine, and see if they take you to court/withhold examination results.

Pay the fine.

Then email/write a letter asking them for the money they owe you
