TV licence

You may want to bring a TV with you for your room and please feel free to do so, but please remember if you will be watching live TV or receive or record live TV programs, you will need a TV license. This applies to all other devices you may watch TV on too such as laptops and iPads.

To find out more, look at payment plans or to buy your license, visit the TV Licensing website

The authorities do recognise that most students do not need the final three months of a license as you leave our accommodation during the summer, so you may be able to receive a refund for this period if you don’t need it again before it expires.

Remember, if you do not have a TV license and you receive or record live TV, you could face prosecution from the TV Licensing Authority.
