Compensate Verde residents 2018

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


During the course of the 2017/2018 academic year, students living at Verde, "luxury student accommodation" supplied by Downing students, paid a premium price in return for, what was hoped to be, a high quality and luxury living environment.

Due to concerns over the cladding encasing the two buildings, works were scheduled to replace these. The works commenced on the 27th of November 2017, and were not completed until the 30th of April the following year. Over the five month period, which spanned across the January exam period, and countless deadline dates for coursework, students were subject to disturbances and disruptions. 

Students in nearby Liberty Plaza have received £750 in compensation for building works on their site. However, the works on their site have only been on going for 3 months and not 5 months as they did at Verde. Due to the disturbances residents have had to deal with, it is only fair that some compensation is given.

If you agree with this petition please sign it to help get the compensation students deserve.
