As a student you're automatically exempt from council tax and if you live in student residences then you don't need to do anything to claim this exemption.
If you live in private accommodation then you'll need to get an exemption form to show to your landlord. Full-time students are only exempt from paying council tax if they prove their exemption. You can get an exemption certificate from the Student Hub.
If everyone in the house is a full-time student, the house will not be liable. If one person is not exempt, the house is liable (although a discount applies). If more than one person is not exempt, the house is liable for the full amount.
If you are in a joint-tenancy and the property is liable for council tax, all occupiers of the house may be pursued for the money, and don't forget - the bigger the property, the larger the bill will be.
If you have any problems regarding your council tax, visit or contact:
