If you are a student and don’t live in a University hall of residence call us and we’ll check if you’re exempt from paying Council Tax or eligible for a discount.
Apply for a discount or exemption (you must include a Student Certificate for each student in the property. You can get these from your University website.).
When you send us the certificates, ensure that the document is fully opened so it shows:
official University logo
your unique Student ID Number/ SHU Code
current issue date
signature from the Certification Officer of the University.
We cannot accept a letter confirming enrolment on a course at the University.
If you are a student looking for accommodation and advice:
Landlords that own properties, let only to students, are required to claim an exemption from Council Tax.
Complete the annual student property review for us to allow your exemption.
