Dilara Tartar started this petition to Private accommodation companies eg FreshStudentLiving

During this pandemic students are struggling greatly financially as well as mentally. Students living in private accommodation, with universities closed for the time being and being in lockdown, many students are in lockdown at their family homes meaning rent is expected to be payed for a room they are no longer staying in. With students losing jobs as well, financially trying to pay rent for the accommodation as well as their everyday living purposes is not being taken into consideration. Private accommodations such as FreshStudentLiving is not even taking students complaint into consideration and not seeing it as a formal complaint and are refusing to do anything about it. Whereas university campus accommodations have taken action and have terminated contracts or offered early move out dates but private accommodations do not want to do anything about it. 
I believe that students have the right whether they are staying on campus accommodations or private accommodations to be able to leave their accommodations during these circumstances or even be offered a rent reduction as they are not staying in the paid accommodation any longer. 
If companies such as FreshStudentLiving can take action and stop refusing to see this as a complaint many students will stop struggling financially as well as mentally as they will not have to worry about not having money to keep them going through this tough period.
