Q. Do I need a television licence?

Yes, if you watch television in your bedroom. All homes in the UK require a television licence and your room is treated as a home under the licensing authority's definition. There is a large screen television with Sky in the Social Hub which has a television licence associated with it. However, for IPTV provided by Ask4 and viewed in your room, you will need a licence.

Q. What other charges can I expect?

You will have to pay for laundry, phone calls, your TV licence, upgrade of insurance or internet packages, and any items purchased from the vending machine.

Q. Can I pay by Bank Transfer?

It is possible to pay by bank transfer, however, please be aware that it can take up to 5 working days to reach us and the payment must be showing in your account before you would be able to check-in to the residence.
