TV licence

You need to buy a TV licence if you’re watching live TV on a personal television or device in your bedroom. Watching BBC iPlayer live, catch up or on demand also requires a licence. 

As not many residences have aerial sockets, we encourage you to watch TV on a laptop or desktop.

Only TVs in University communal areas are covered by the University’s TV licence.
