How do I claim Council Tax exemption as a student?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s students

If you live in the City of Edinburgh Council area, the University will send your details approximately 4 weeks after the start of the trimester to inform them that you are a student if you are:

  • A full-time matriculated student and
  • Have an Edinburgh term-time address on your eStudent Record (see how to change your address here)

You also need to confirm your term-time address with the council by completing the online form found on their website here.

If you live outside Edinburgh

Please check with your Local Council for further advice. Exemption forms can be stamped and signed at any of the iPoint

Your End date

Council Tax exemption will cease on the course expiry date and not graduation.

The course end date is the last day that an assessment can be scheduled in the final year and trimester of your course of study.

If you are unsure as to when this should be, please contact the iPoint.
