Patricia Kelly started this petition to Michelle Donelan

Earlier today universities minister Michelle Donelan announced financial support for university students whose studies have been affected by the pandemic but said the hardship fund would not cover private rental. My son, like many students has been forced by the pandemic to return home and lectures are only being delivered online. He is still paying £400 per month for a room in a shared house which he is not occupying. Students were assured by the government that universities were safe and that courses would not be online. They are not only being short changed on their tuition fees, but are now also going into serious debt in order to pay for accommodation they are not living in. Please sign this petition to force the minister to ensure student lettings agencies and landlords either offer rebates or grant students early release  from their contracts.
