Student Roost, you are one of the few companies that has profited from this pandemic. And also one of the few accommodation companies that haven't offered a refund.

Ever since students were forced to stick with their accommodation in September many of your rooms have remained empty. It is therefore no secret that you have saved hundreds upon thousands in utility bills across your nearly 50 properties and 17,000 beds.

We want Student Roost to offer its tenants a partial refund, to accommodate for the money you have saved through this pandemic.

We are more than aware we have a standing contract, but on a moral ground this is wrong. Students are unable to get back to their accommodation, yet are expected to pay the full price.

We want to talk with Student Roost to negotiate a reasonable refund for tenants, one which is fair for both us and Student Roost themselves.

Our education has been tarnished by Covid, our social lives crushed and many students mental health is greatly suffering, with suicides at accommodations increasing.

Student Roost has two options - Refund Students (Many of which are essential workers and Student nurses) and give thousands of tenants financial relief for these tough times. Or, submit to greed and pandemic profiting, and make students lives even more difficult than it currently is. 

We need no reminder of the extent Manchester pupils went to secure a refund, with rent strikes and accommodation occupations. We are certain people will be willing to go to this extreme.

Do the right thing, and offer tenants a refund.
