EE unveils new free data offer for university students

EE today announced the launch of a new student offer which provides 500MB of free data per month to new, upgrading or existing eligible pay monthly mobile customers who are UK university students or in further education and registered with leading student affinity network UNiDAYS.

Students who are on or sign up for an eligible 24 month EE pay monthly handset or 12 month SIM only voice, text and data plan will not only be able to stream, browse and play without the worry of going over their allowance thanks to EE’s data caps, but with WiFi Calling, 4G Calling and free WiFi on London Underground they can also stay connected to friends and family in more places. The additional 500MB of data per month can be used once a student has used their plan’s inclusive data allowance to provide ‘data safety net’ – giving them a free boost that can be used each month as they wish.

UK university students can also combine the offer with EE’s existing student discount, allowing customers who join or upgrade via to receive 20% off pay monthly handset or 12-month SIM only mobile plans. Anyone taking advantage of this discount from today will be automatically enrolled for the additional 500MB of data free of charge.

How to apply for the 500MB university student data offer:

Existing student customers with an eligible plan can sign up to the offer by:

  1. Texting ‘STUDENT’ to 150 and entering your unique UNiDAYS code when prompted and follow the sign-up instructions
  2. Customers will receive a confirmation when the 500MB data safety net has been activated

New customers will also be able to save on Apple Music, receiving six months free membership when they start their contract with EE.
