Council Tax

I am a full-time student but I live with someone who is not a student, what should I do?

If you study full-time but you live with adult(s) who are not full-time students then your household will still be issued with a Council Tax bill. As a full-time student, you are not legally responsible or liable for the bill providing you have applied for the exemption yourself through the government council tax discount page.


Should you only live with one other adult who is not a full-time student then they can apply for a 25% single persons discount on the bill, please see the above link for guidance on how to do this.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.

Our Award-Winning Student Services Teams' prime focus is to ensure all students enjoy their University experience.

We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
