TV refund for some students

TV Licensing is reminding students moving home for the summer they may be able to claim a refund, worth £36, on their licence.


Students who bought a TV Licence at the start of the academic year will have three full months remaining and a refund can be claimed for the unused quarter.

To be eligible, students need to have a TV Licence with three months remaining, be leaving their halls or rented accommodation and moving to a licensed address.

They can apply online or by phone. Those students who aren’t returning home, but moving straight into a shared house or private accommodation, can move their TV Licence to their new address.

Visit, or call TV Licensing on 0300 790 6113.
