Premium for Students and Hulu

If you’re a college or university student, get discounted Spotify Premium, which includes access to Hulu’s streaming library.

Get started

Whether you're new to Premium for Students or already have it, you can sign up for the Hulu package here.

  • You must be able to verify your student status to be eligible. If you need any help, check out our student discount help area.
  • This offer can’t be used in conjunction with Premium for Family.
  • If you’re already subscribed to Premium with another company (e.g. your broadband/mobile provider, or with iTunes) you need to cancel with them before signing up to this package.

New to Hulu?

You can create an account with Hulu when you sign up to the deal.

Note: Hulu is currently only available in English.

Already using Hulu?

You can connect your existing Hulu Limited Commercials account to Spotify when you sign up to this deal. 

Note: Premium for Students is not compatible with the Hulu No Commercials or Live TV plans, or with any Hulu premium add-ons.


You’ll have access to the Hulu Limited Commercials plan, which includes unlimited streaming of exclusive series, hit movies, Hulu originals, and more, on your favorite devices.

Note: It's not possible to upgrade to the Hulu No Commercials or Live TV plans, or to any Hulu Premium add-ons.

When your Student plan ends with Spotify, you will no longer have access to Hulu at this rate.

If you connected to either the wrong Spotify or Hulu account, you need to cancel the subscription and resubscribe with the correct account.

Yep! Sign up and the discounted rate will automatically begin on your next billing date.

Note: If you subscribed through another company (e.g. with your internet/mobile provider or iTunes), you need to cancel your existing subscription with them before signing up.

You can check the status of your subscription at any time.

You can reactivate your access to Hulu

Hulu can’t authorize my Spotify account

If you see this message from Hulu: “We're having trouble authorizing your account with Spotify", wait 24 hours, then head to your account page and click Go to Hulu to re-link your accounts.

I‘m having trouble verifying my student status

It can take up to 28 days for your student credentials to be verified.

We use the good folks at SheerID to verify your student credentials. If you’re having trouble signing up, you can submit for manual verification (this can take up to 12 hours to process). For more info, check out the SheerID FAQ.

If we’re unable to verify your student I.D., you won’t be eligible to claim the student discount. In this instance, any charges will show on your statement as ‘pending’, meaning no money has actually been taken.
Once the bank receives the confirmation that your student I.D. failed to verify, the ‘pending’ charge will be refunded. This can take up to 48 hours, depending on your bank. You can reach out to them for more information.

Otherwise, try logging out and back in. Occasionally this is needed to force a sync of info between your device and our account system.

It’s also worth checking you’re logged into the right account.
