Today (5/01/2021) the University of East Anglia postponed all in-person teaching until the 1st of March 2021. Residents of Pablo Fanque House who have already paid rent for Semester 2, but have yet to use their rooms this year, are legally unable to travel to their dorms in Norwich considering these restrictions. 

This inability to travel and lack of in-person teaching has been recognised by UEA, who are giving all on-campus students full refunds in rent lost between 1st of January 2021 and 1st of March 2021. 

Furthermore, residents living abroad are unable to safely travel back to the UK due to higher transmission risks. With many countries stopping all travel from the UK, international students who left during the Christmas travel window now feel unsafe returning and not knowing when they would once again be able to return home. 

It is unethical to be paying for a room that legally cannot be travelled to, particularly considering that factored into the cost we have already been pushed to pay is water and electricity that will not be consumed. 

Those who sign this petition demand that HFS and the Pablo Fanque House Team give a full re-imbursement of our weekly £166 a week fees, lost between the 1st of January 2021 and 1st of March 2021.
