Music plays an important role in campus life. Whether you’re putting on a live event at a Student Union, playing music in the cafeteria or showing TV in the student lounge, it is likely you will need a licence from PRS for Music if you are playing music controlled by us. Our licence gives you the legal permission you need to play the songs you want.*
