Notes

This field should contain the lower quartile of the annual costs of a bed-space in private sector accommodation at the location. This must exist unless all courses for which a KIS is required are delivered by distance learning (i.e. all linked KISCourses have KISCourse.DISTANCE = 1 or null).

There are many different ways to calculate quartiles, all of which are acceptable. Guidance on calculating quartiles can be found at http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Quartile.html.

This field should only represent accommodation available to undergraduates.

Further guidance is available in the Accommodation costs document.

This field can contain values in the range 0-99999, validation will restrict the range to 1500-15000.
