Our monthly student discount is open to new customers and to customers who are already with us and want to upgrade. You can take advantage of this offer by entering your unique UNiDAYS discount at checkout when buying a new SIM Only or phone plan. Your university or institution must be listed on UNiDAYS to be eligible for this offer.
This offer is available on all individual phone and SIM Only plans apart from 4GEE Max Annual Upgrade plans and SIM Only plans already on special offer (as marked by an offer end date). This offer excludes 4GEE WiFi and tablet plans. By taking this offer, you'll automatically receive your 500MB data safety net each month and won’t need to do anything else to activate it.
If you bought somewhere other than the EE website, including an EE store, over the phone with an EE advisor or through one of our indirect partners like Carphone Warehouse, you won’t be able to receive a 20% discount but can still get a 500MB student data safety net – an extra 500MB of data every month, totally free. Text STUDENT to 150 and follow the instructions to add this to your account.
I'd like 20% off the cost of my phone plan. How do I get a discount code?
Our 20% monthly student discount is available to new and upgrading customers only, and you must be a University student. If you’re already with us, check if you’re eligible to upgrade by logging in to My EE.
To get a discount code, visit ee.co.uk/unidays. You'll need to be a verified member of UNiDAYS, but you’ll be able to register on this page.
After you've got a code, choose your new phone or SIM Only plan from our online shopand enter your discount code at the checkout in the 'Got a voucher?' box.

Already got a 20% discount code?
If you're new to EE and you’ve already got your 20% discount code, you can start shopping now for your new phone or SIM Only plan.

If you’re new to EE or are with us already and ready to upgrade, you’re eligible to get 20% off your monthly plan on any 24-month phone plan, and on any SIM Only plan that isn’t already on a special offer (shown clearly by an offer end date).
4GEE Max Annual Upgrade plans aren’t included in this offer, and neither are 4GEE WiFi or tablet plans.
Our EE student discount is only on phone and SIM Only plans, and won’t work on 4GEE Max Annual Upgrade plans and SIM Only plans that are already on special offer.

Please bear in mind that discount codes will only work once per customer, so if you've already used your code you won’t be able to use it again.
About our 500MB student data safety net
If you’re already with us and have a phone or SIM Only plan then you’re eligible for our 500MB student data safety net – an extra 500MB of data every month, totally free. The additional data will be added onto your standard data allowance each month for the remainder of your contract.
To add your 500MB data safety net to your account, text STUDENT to 150 and follow the instructions.
If you’re taking a new phone or SIM Only plan with our 20% student discount offer, your 500MB data safety net will start automatically and you won’t need to text 150.
Once your 500MB data safety net is on your account, you don’t need to do anything to start it: it'll just be added to your existing allowance. This means that your total data allowance will be the allowance on your plan plus 500MB (for example, if you’re on a 1GB plan, you'll see 1.5GB as your total allowance on My EE and your plan).
I'm already with EE. What can I get?
If you're already with us and are ready to upgrade, grab a code here to get 20% off your monthly cost and start shopping for your brand new phone. You’ll also automatically receive a monthly 500MB data safety net every single month, totally free.
To check if you’re eligible to upgrade, login to My EE or text UP to 150.
If you’re already with us but aren't ready to upgrade yet, you can still get a monthly 500MB data safety net – an extra 500MB every single month, totally free. Text STUDENT to 150 and follow the instructions.
Which plans are eligible for the 500MB data safety net?
If you're on an EE phone or SIM only plan, you're eligible for the 500MB student data safety net. 4GEE WiFi and tablet plans aren't currently included.
Please see the terms and conditions of this offer for any further exclusions.
I texted STUDENT to 150 but my data safety net hasn’t worked
If you’ve texted STUDENT to 150 and received an error message in response, please open up a chat with one of our advisors and explain what’s happened. They’ll be able to help you there and then.

What happens to my 500MB data safety net when I want to upgrade?
If you’ve already added your 500MB data safety net to your plan but have now decided to upgrade, you’ve got a couple of different options to choose from.
The easiest option is to upgrade online, where you’ll receive a 20% student discountoff the monthly cost of your plan. Your 500MB data safety net will then be automatically added to your account and will run for the length of your new contract. You'll need a UNiDAYS discount code to do this.
If you upgrade at an EE store or over the phone with an EE advisor, your 500MB data safety net will be automatically re-added to your account and will last for the length of your new contract.
If you upgrade anywhere else, like Carphone Warehouse, you'll need to go through the same process you did the first time to add your 500MB data safety net. Text STUDENT to 150 and follow the instructions.
Please note that you must still be a registered and verified member of UNiDAYS at the time you wish to upgrade to continue being eligible for our student offers, including both the 20% discount and 500MB data safety net. If you are no longer a verified UNiDAYS member, your 500MB data safety net will end and you will no longer be eligible to receive this benefit.
