LIVING IN BURNLEY, PRESTON, OR SOUTH RIBBLE AREAS? YOU MAY NOT NEED A COUNCIL TAX STUDENT CERTIFICATE.
If you are living in districts covered by, Burnley Borough Council, Preston City Council or South Ribble Brough Council, UCLan has a special arrangement whereby you do not need to provide a certificate to obtain exemption from Council Tax. All full-time enrolled students have their details sent electronically, by the university, to these councils in late October. If you live within one of the above areas you simply need to ensure you have provided UCLan with your correct term time address and then contact your local council. Your name will then be checked on the electronic database sent by the University. Provided you have enrolled on a full-time course at UCLan your details will be included on the electronic database.

If you require any further information regarding Council Tax please take a look at the UCLan Private Registered Accommodation web page. The section regarding Council Tax is at the bottom of the page.
