Lucy Hill started this petition to Tramways Accomodation and

I am a student currently studying at the University of Salford and currently, myself and many others living in Tramways Accommodation, Salford, owned by the housing group Sanctuary Students; are currently being charged fully for rent, with the majority of us no longer living there due to the current Lockdown. 

I have tried everything up until this point and I now have no choice but to campaign to at least get some money knocked off of our rent. We as a University have just received an email to say that we will most likely not be returning to campus for classes until April, after the Easter Holidays. In the meantime, we are still being charged for rent for accommodation that we are not living in.

The University has set up a Covid Relief Fund but it is only helping a set number of people living in Private Accommodation and not the vast majority. Please help us campaign to get us released from our contracts without having to pay full rent, or at least freeze our rent for the time being until it is safe to return to campus. This should not be allowed to happen and many students are now going on a rent strike as a result. 

F.A.O. TRAMWAYS ACCOMODATION (SANCTUARY STUDENTS), SALFORD, GREATER MANCHESTER & THE UNIVERSITY OF SALFORD 

We are losing money that could otherwise be saved for our futures. I am a final year University student and I finish my degree in May. I do not want to have thousands taken from me for accommodation that I am not living in. This will cause myself and many others who currently cannot move back due to Lockdown, a lot of financial stress in the long-run. 

I hope to get the word out to Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester; Rebecca Long-Bailey; Member of Parliament for Salford and Eccles and Paul Dennett; Mayor of Salford in Greater Manchester, UK. Please sign and share. Much appreciated. This Government needs to be helping out all residents in private accommodation as well as supporting landlords with a safety net to help them financially so that they can support us as students. We need the University of Salford on board with our campaigning too.
