» TV Licence Refund? Don't Forget to Claim if You're Moving Home For The Summer

TV Licensing would like to remind those students moving home for the summer they may be able to claim a refund on their licence.

Students who purchased a TV Licence at the start of the academic year will have a full three months remaining on their licence and refunds can be claimed for unused quarters.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of the refund. To be eligible, students need to have a TV Licence, be leaving their halls or rented accommodation and be moving to a licensed address.

Matt Francis, spokesperson for TV Licensing Wales, said: “The student refund is brilliant news for students and we encourage those who bought their licence at the start of the academic year to take advantage of it. We want to help students understand the law when it comes to watching live TV on any device and help them avoid a fine. Reminding them about the refund is part of knowing when you do and don’t need a licence.”

Recent research by TV Licensing shows four out of five students watch TV via some device with 74 per cent of students using a laptop to watch TV. A TV Licence is needed to watch, record or stream programmes at the same time as they are shown on TV. This is the case whether you use a TV, laptop, games console, tablet, mobile phone, or any other device.

To arrange a refund, or for further information, simply visit: www.tvlicensing.co.uk/studentinfo, or call TV Licensing on 0300 790 6113.

The survey is conducted by Professor Katy Holloway and Emeritus Professor Trevor Bennett from the Centre for Criminology at the University of South Wales in collaboration with Dr Rhian Hills from Welsh Government. The results will be presented in aggregated form and we plan to publish in academic peer-reviewed journals. The research has received ethical approval from the University of South Wales, Faculty of Business and Society Research Committee.

Have you thought about what to do with your recycling and waste when you move out at the end of term? Leaving it on the pavement on move out day, without prior arrangement, could result in a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £100.

The City of Cardiff Council can help.

Here are your options:

Put your recycling and waste out no earlier than 4.30pm on Tuesday, and by 6am on collection day.

2. Before you pack up your car to leave, take a trip to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre on Wedal Road.

  • Using our recycling centres is free, but don’t forget – you will need ID (e.g. a tenancy agreement) to prove you are a resident.
  • Please note that you cannot use vans at Wedal Road. Vans can be used at the city’s other recycling sites but must be booked in advance by calling (029) 2087 2087.

3. Pay for an arranged collection

  • Pay for a one-off collection, any day of the week, from as little as £10.
