Due to the current circumstances our country is facing because of COVID-19, we are all having to make sudden changes. Our Universities have had to suspend face to face teaching, along with closing all buildings on campus. We have been advised by the university's themselves to RETURN HOME and 'socially distance' ourselves.

Many people may be in a situation that they cannot return home, but those of us who can are still continuing to rack up debt for a flat we have been advised to no longer live in. Parents and students who are no longer working because of COVID-19 are struggling and feel as though they should not need to continue to pay over £1000 for an empty room. Contract or not, Student choice must realise that their contract and break clauses do not cover the unforeseen pandemic we are facing now and it is categorically unfair and greedy to charge students for rent if they are unable to live in their accommodation.

Students use student accommodation for living within a convenient distance from their university, but what do they have to say for themselves when all of the universities have been closed? 
university hall accommodation and Unity have stopped rent due, why can’t you?
