If you are bringing a TV to watch live TV, or if you receive or record live TV programmes on any other device, such as a laptop, you will need a TV Licence. You won’t be covered by your parents’ licence.
From September 2016, you’ll need a TV license to watch the BBC iPlayer.
For more information and to buy your licence, visit the TV Licensing website. There are a variety of payment plans available.
The TV licensing authorities recognise that most students do not need the final three months of a TV licence as you leave the accommodation during the summer. You may be able to receive a refund for this period, provided that you don’t need your licence again before it expires.
If you do not have a TV Licence but you receive or record live TV you could face prosecution from the TV Licensing Authority.
