As you all know students have been ignored through out this entire pandemic, so far the only time we have been mentioned is when we are blamed for the rise in covid cases. 

Due to the lock down restrictions, students have been asked to choose between staying at their university accommodation by themselves or going home to their families. During this time, it is likely that many students chose to go home, rather than risk being lonely and suffering from mental health problems with no support in their uni town. 

Furthermore, students were mislead with information prior to booking accommodation, which stated that students will receive blended face-to-face and online learning. However, even before tier 4 and 5 restrictions, face-to-face lectures were barely 2 hours a week. 

Students such as myself are being asked to pay full rent accommodation. Despite my many calls for a rent refund since I moved out 3 weeks after I moved in in October, Homes for Students have been less than co-operative stating that the accommodation remains open therefore there is no reason for a rent refund, completely disregarding the lock down restrictions. 

Therefore, I am once again (now with your help) calling for Homes for Students to eradicate ALL future rent payments from 31st December. In addition, I believe after the previous academic year, Homes for Students should have made it a top priority to consider a Covid cancelation policy within their contracts. Forcing students to pay for accommodation they no longer live in due these stressful circumstances is extortion. 

Please sign & share!!
