Council Tax

Most students are entitled to some form of exemption or discount, but this depends on individual circumstances. If you are exempt from paying Council Tax you will need to submit a Student Exemption application form to your local council as well as a Council Tax Exemption Certificate providing details about your course.

During term-time, you can print a copy of your Council Tax Certificate via the student self-service portal (S3P):

Outside of term-time, you can submit a request for a Certificate to the Student Data Team, by emailing:

If you are living within the Newcastle City Council area you can complete an online exemption/discount form at:
