Amrita P started this petition to Governor Phil Murphy and

Students all over the United States from University such as North Carolina State University, Rutgers University, California University, and many more demand that off campus apartments need to stop charging us rent for empty apartments.

Since the closure of the Universities in March due to Covid-19 outbreak, majority student have returned home to stay with their families and quarantine as the cases increased in our university and while on-campus students have received refund for leaving their residential area, off campus student are still required to pay rent for their empty apartments. This is put an immense burden on off-campus students, since a lot of people have lost jobs and internship since then. Some students have noticed and increase in rent as well. Not only that, the amount of money that could be used to pay for our education is now being used to pay for an empty apartment. This puts an unimaginable financial stress and anxiety on each and every one of us.

Waiving late fees is not the solution we are looking for, we need to have the right to terminate our lease if needed. Even on-campus students had signed a contract and were let out of it due to the crisis of the pandemic. Off-campus student should deserve the same right, as both on-campus and off-campus student had rented residential area to be able to attend college. If on-campus college is closed then I demand that similarly to an on-campus student, off-campus student should also have the right to terminate their lease. Please hear our plea and Stop Making us Pay for empty apartments!

Students who have left their apartment due to the pandemic should be permitted to vacate their leases without financial penalty and without negative rental history marks!

We urge United States Governor to take action!
