    Hi,

    I want to rent a room for next course in a student hall but now they've told me that as i'm not a UK resident or homeowner I have to pay all the money at the start of the tenancy (which is so much), is there something i can do to change this?

    no, they won't be flexible on this... it's because of the amount it costs to pursue international students for rent once they leave, basically if you don't pay and then leave the country they have to accept the money is gone as it costs too much to get it back to be worth doing

    I think the issue will be your non UK based ID/passport

    Ask them if there are any other alternatives such as an insurance policy or a UK guarantor? Do you ahve a family friend etc in the UK? Otherwise you are stuck with up front. UK card makes no difference.
