Please answer the questions below to find out what you need to do next.
1) Are you a full time student?
If you're not a full time student, you are not eligible for a Council Tax exemption, please contact your local authority for more information.
If you are a full time student, you may be eligible for an exemption, please move on to question 2.
2) Is the letter for you or are you requesting it on behalf of someone else?
If the letter is for someone else to claim a Council Tax discount or exemption (for example, a parent), you will need to order a Confirmation of Student Status letter, which can be requested here.
If the letter is for you, you may be eligible, please move on to question 3.
3) Do you live in University Halls of Residence?
If you do, you are automatically exempted from paying Council Tax and no further action is required.
If you do not live in Halls of Residence, but you do live within one of the seven Local Authority areas listed below, you do not need a letter, as the University will notify them on your behalf. Please ensure you are fully registered and you have entered both your term-time and home address on the NottinghamHub in order to be included in the list for the correct Local Authority area.
- Broxtowe Borough Council
- Derby City Council
- Erewash Borough Council
- Gedling Borough Council
- North West Leicestershire District Council
- Nottingham City Council
- Rushcliffe Borough Council
If you do not live in University Halls of Residence, and you live outside of the Local Authority areas listed below, you may still be eligible to receive a Council Tax exemption, please answer question 4 below.
4) Are you a Postgraduate Research student?
If you have not yet entered your thesis pending period, please click here to order a council tax exemption letter.
If you are in your thesis pending period, in order to be eligible for a Council Tax exemption you must first be registered. If you don't register at the point of entering thesis pending you cannot retrospectively claim a Council Tax exemption.
Once you have submitted your first submission thesis for examination you are no longer eligible for a Council Tax exemption.
You are likely to be eligible for a Council Tax exemption, please order your letter here and one of our trained advisors will check and produce the document for you.
