Kelly Goodeve started this petition to Students of Britain and residents of Beckley Point

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 4th January regarding the new national lockdown imposed until February half time at the earliest, students of certain fields have been told to stay where they are and continue their learning from home, online. As it is the Christmas holidays, many students are now imposed by law to stay at home rather than return to student accommodation which they must still pay for. 
On initial contact, the owner of Beckley Point has made it clear they are not planning on reducing or refunding rent, regardless of whether the law permits us to return or not. 
As residents of Beckley Point, and other students across the United Kingdom who reside within the Student Housing Company’s properties, we want to come to an agreement during which the rent for student accommodation is either lowered or considered entirely null for the time the UK government has us in a national lockdown. Still charging rent for a student flat which we are not lawfully allowed to return to is exploitation.
