Students could claim £50 TV licence refund

Students could receive a partial refund on their TV licence

Students moving home for the summer could be entitled to a partial refund on their TV licence.

The refund would apply to any student moving out of term-time accomodation and back to an already licensed home over the summer.

If a student bought a licence last October and moved out in May, the refund could be worth up to £50.16

TV Licensing has advised that to be eligable, students must be able to show evidence that their licence is no longer needed, such as a copy of the end of their tenancy agreement

Alana Taylor, spokesperson for TV Licensing, said: “Many students are unaware that they can claim a refund on their TV Licence when returning home for the summer and so could be missing out on an extra £50 in their pockets.

“Applying for a refund is quick and easy and we encourage all students who are eligible, or their parents in some cases, to take advantage of it."

To arrange a refund or change address, visit:, or call TV Licensing on 0300 790 6113.
