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. Our TV licences only cover the TVs that we provide, for example in common rooms and lounge areas.

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.
