As many other accommodations have, it’s only fair we protest for our rent to be made cheaper, or not have to pay for the weeks we aren’t living in the building. 
When signing the contract for our accommodations, we weren’t to know the city would be placed into tier 4.  There are many of us who are unable to move back to the accommodation due to the virus, not being able to afford living there or don’t want to move into a higher tier area- which are the cases for the most of us. 

At the start of the year, I’m sure we all planned to go home for Christmas and be back for the second semester. Following the new restrictions the majority of us aren’t moving back, and we’re still being made to pay the rent. MSV have not contacted us in any way regarding rent and the situation surrounding it, only locked off our communal areas which are only for our building’s residents anyway? 
Being a resident at Dwell in the current situation, is poor. We’re stuck in tiny box rooms, we can’t socialise or surround ourselves with people from the same building?
We can’t even go out to explore the new city we’ve moved to as everywhere is closed. 

Like myself, there are a number of us who’s student loan doesn’t even cover our rent- and we’re having to dig into our own pockets to pay for a room we can’t move back to. How is this fair? How is this acceptable?
Well, it isn’t. Especially in a time like this, where the vast majority of students are unemployed and are struggling to find a job. 
The country as a whole has missed out on a large salary, and we’re still having to dig deep into our pockets for money we don’t have, some cases asking for money from all members of the family just to cover rent, food and money for luxuries like nights out or clothes

It would be a massive help to all students if we didn’t have to pay for a room we’re not using. Only our own actions as students and families can help work towards getting our rents reduced or cleared, which is why it is EXTREMELY important we sign these petitions and share them wherever we can!

This petition is created from Manchester’s Dwell students, however is aimed towards helping all Dwell residents across the country.
Thank you for the support if you have decided to read and sign.
