I am currently undertaking a study regarding the number of students renting privately owned properties in your area, who aren’t in university provided accommodation. I am therefore looking for a record of tax exemptions specifically for university students in the area.


As at 31st August 2011 the number of properties in Charnwood, exempt from Council Tax on the basis that they are occupied entirely by students was 1,637.  This would include students studying at any educational establishment, not just Loughborough University. This figure does not include University halls of residence.
