Us students feel like we are cash cows and want to join other universities in the nation-wide rent strike for students. As students we have been lied to we were all told campuses would be safe and there would be face to face teaching but, within days of arriving, many found teaching was completely online or barely two hours teaching face-to-face every two weeks or never. Understandably, students feel like they have been ripped off being over charged on university lesson fees and rent in their accommodations. There are a lot of the facilities which students do not have access to at Merlin Heights such as the games room, quiet study area , sky lounge and good enough WiFi to study. Not to forget we all live opposite a construction site where new flats were being built which disturbed our sleep everyday Monday to Friday and sometimes even on a Saturday. We were promised a lot and not a lot has been delivered and instead of being at home with our families we have been trapped at our accommodations alone as we have been told we are not allowed visitors. So we all think it is only fair the rent is reduced as tenants are not getting their moneys worth as we are not getting what we would normally experience as a student. The rent is over priced for what we are getting and we think its fair that the rent is reduced by at least 30%. This year has been hard enough and to exploit students in this terrible situation is disgusting.
