Halls of residence
Student halls of residence are exempt from council tax.
If you live in a student hall of residence there is nothing to pay. You don't need to claim an exemption.
To qualify as a student hall of residence the building must be:
- owned or managed by a charity, or by an educational establishment that mainly provides further or higher education; or
- included in an agreement that allows an educational establishment to allocate most of the people who live there.
