Why this petition matters
The Degree Apartment in Las Vegas claims that they are UNLV (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) Housing and only accepts UNLV students, misleading the students to believe that they are an apartment managed by the school. However, when at disadvantage, they claim that they are a separate business. They are false advertising by deceiving students to think that they are UNLV Housing and getting advertisement benefits from the UNLV. UNLV claims that they have partnership with the Degree Apartment but that they are still a separate business. However, because both UNLV and the Degree Apartment has not made this clear, many students have fell for this and signed a contract with the Degree Apartment over any other apartments in the area thinking it would be safer and would follow the UNLV’s policies and guidelines. There are proofs of the Degree Apartment claiming that they are UNLV Housing attached below – which definitely sounds like they are an apartment operated by UNLV.
UNLV and the Degree Apartment need to specifically clarify that they are only affiliated by partnership, but are separate businesses, and therefore do not work together. We are turning this in as a proof of all the students who have been misled by the Degree Apartment’s false advertisement and suffered a loss from their wrongdoing.
Action Petitioned for
We, the undersigned, are concerned students who have been misled to sign a contract with the Degree Apartment because of their false/misleading advertisement. To compensate for our loss, we ask that the Degree Apartment either terminates our lease with a cancellation fee or pause our lease.
