If I bring a television do I need a TV licence?

Yes - You need to be covered by a TV Licence to watch or record live TV programmes on any channel, or download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer.

For further information, and to buy a TV Licence, please refer to our TV Licencing webpage.

Please note: if your residence includes a TV within the kitchen then a TV licence is included in the accommodation fee for that device, however if you choose to bring your own TV then a separate licence will be required.

You will also need to provide your own indoor TV aerial as our bedrooms do not contain aerial sockets.
