Students at the University of Michigan have been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Our classes were moved online and we have had to self-quarantine. To top it off, the University promised to keep the residential halls open - then within a week effectively kicked students out, demanding we leave unless our petition to stay demonstrated sufficient need. This has placed a massive financial, physical, and emotional burden on the students, as we have had to arrange emergency transportation home while keeping up with all of our classes and homework. In addition, this violates the 1st clause in our housing contracts, as we have all already paid for the full term of housing. Thus, we demand that the University of Michigan issue a refund to every student who paid for University-run housing, for the full amount for the Winter 2020 semester. This is equal to one-half of most students' total contract price. This will help ease the students' financial hardships, demonstrate the University's care for its students, and bring the University into compliance with the second clause in our housing contracts. In addition, this will reflect the policy adopted by many other colleges during this crisis, a list including our rival MSU. Let's be the Leaders and the Best beyond just education; let's set the example in caring for our students during this pandemic.
