Halls manager info

Important information for halls managers

The law still applies to students. They must be covered by a TV Licence to download or watch BBC programmes on BBC iPlayer, or to watch or record programmes, on any channel, as they’re being shown on TV or live on an online TV service. This applies to any device and any provider they use.

Help us make sure they know the facts, and buy a licence if they need one, by including these resources in your student communications. Use the versions here, as anything left over from last year (or earlier) is now out of date.
