Tahmina Jalil started this petition to iQ student acommodation

So many universities have emailed their students offering rent reductions or even a period where they do not have to pay rent (for example during isolation or lockdown) and have made it easier for students to leave contracts due to hardships caused by COVID-19. iQ on the other hand, has made it so that students must find someone to take over their contracts despite students being told to stay home and not go back to uni by the government in order to be released from their contracts. So many students feel trapped, depressed and alone during this time and these actions by iQ only exacerbate these feelings. The Prime Minister has just announced another national lockdown and so students will be made to stay home, where some cannot focus on university work, where most will not be able to see their family or friends for long periods of time, and where the burden of paying rent will only worsen the emotional strain of everyone’s current situation. We are asking for rent reduction for those choosing to stay at iQ and a release from their contract for anyone wishing to stay home. This is the least we could ask of iQ considering the physical and emotional strain on students during this pandemic.
