Broadband and WiFi are pretty much everywhere – at uni, in McDonalds, in Starbucks, and even in bars and pubs. Whether you’re just about to move out of your parents’ house or halls, setting up the internet in your new gaff is a necessary step for any student.
TV licensing is probably something you’ve never had to think about before. It’s not like broadband where if you don’t sort it you can’t access the internet. You can still watch TV without a licence, but trust us, you really shouldn’t. You could end up with a £1,000 fine. Ouch.
Sorting out your water bill isn’t quite as complicated as energy and broadband, but it can still get a bit confusing (especially if you’ve never had to go it alone before).
Council Tax is the tax we all have to pay to our councils for local services like road maintenance, bin collections, emergency services and loads of other stuff. Luckily for you, as a household full of full-time students*, you’re exempt from Council Tax. You don’t have to pay a penny.
