If you move in order to study at a university or college, you are usually required to be nationally registered in the municipality where you are studying. This is governed by Folkbokföringslagen (the Swedish Population Registration Act, SFS1991:481).
Students that have a TV receiver and are registered in the municipality where they are studying are required to pay their own radio and TV fee even if they are subletting a flat. Students under 18 that are attending gymnasiet, are considered living at home as a part of their parents’/legal guardians’ household, even if they are studying elsewhere.
Boarding houses and students´ hostels
If a company has a boarding house/students’ hostel, such as a student corridor, and the company has provided a TV receiver in a common assembly room, it is the company who is required to pay the radio and TV fee for this TV receiver.
