You as students should support this petition because it is at the end of the day your money that is being wasted this money could be better spent on improving courses, the campus and our university experience in general. Do you want your tuition fees going towards a rent free apartment for one of the highest paid (if not the highest) people at the university ? If not then sign this petition and lets stop this needless waste of OUR money.

      Great going guys we are really gathering pace! Keep sharing the petition on facebook and twitter hopefully we can hit the 1000 mark. Honestly can't believe we are nearly at the 400 mark after less than 24 hours.

      The tuition fees we pay is how the university funds itself we should get a greater say in how our money is spent maybe this petition can be a small step on the way to that :). Keep up the support guys!

      Thanks again

      Aren't VCs paid a high enough salary already?

      What's with this ludicrous waste of money that should be being spent on education? If he wants guests to stay overnight the University has halls of residence. If these are not good enough for his guests, then one wonders whether they are good enough for the students!

      I am a DMU postgrad student; I can think of better ways this money could be spent. This does not benefit education!

      As a fashion student I am disgusted that cuts have been made to our department, namely for Graduate Fashion Week, to fund this absurdity.

      He is perfectly able to pay for his own accommodation in the Leicester area. The money could be better spent on much needed improvement. Well educated and equipped students are more important than a pampered VC.

      all can say is that he is evidently a very selfish man. I'm sure if the tables were turned, and he was made to pay a portion of the students rent, he would not be as care free and blase about DMU as he is now.
