You can keep your home or contact address up to date by logging on to MyHud.
It is very importnat that we have your up to date current name as this will be printed on your graduation certificate. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any change of any name documents including gender identity changes.
It’s important to re-register as a student at the start of each year of your course. This confirms that you are still studying with us and ensures that you receive your finance on time.
You can re-register online using the Student Hub. This is available from 1st August onwards each year for most students. We will email you in advance to let you know how to do this.
Please note that any financial support can only be paid to you after term officially starts regardless of whether you complete your re-registration before this. However, completing your re-registration in good time helps to ensure there are no delays in the release of any money you are due to be paid by Student Finance England (or Student Awards Agency Scotland or Student Finance Wales).
Under Council Tax legislation, you will be considered as a full time student for council tax purposes if:
• you are enrolled with a 'prescribed educational establishment'
• you are enrolled to attend a course of education lasting for at least one academic or calendar year
• undertaking studies for at least 24 weeks of the year
• you are a student for at least 21 hours per week during term time
The final decision regarding Council Tax discount rests with the relevant local authority and not the University of Huddersfield.
For further information to check eligibility and to obtain a Council Tax letter, you can call at iPoint in Student Central to obtain your letter if required, just speak to one of the Customer Support Advisors and they will print a letter for you.
If you are living in Kirklees (the University's local authority), you can register your residency online. Therefore, you do not require an exemption letter from us.
For further information please see the iPoint website.
