Council Tax Information
If you are a full time current student living with other full time students, then you will not be liable to pay Council Tax. Full time students living with non-students are also not liable for Council Tax but the house will still attract the tax which the non-student will have to pay. If there is only one adult non-student in the house, the Council Tax bill should be reduced by 25%. This has been the position since 6th April 2004.
The University can provide a Council Tax exemption certificate which are available from the Information Points based at both Cadman building or Brindley Building. Alternatively, you can request this via email on: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is then up to you to complete the council details on the form and send to the council.
If you are studying on a part-time course, you are not eligible for a council tax certificate (unless you are repeating part-time in a full-time award).
You can complete the Council Tax exemption certificate online by following the link to the Council website below –
