Free education is about more than just cutting tuition fees. The cost of rent is currently on of the largest barriers for prospective students, particularly in London, and even for those of us who pay to live in London the price will be a debt that will chain us for most of our adult lives. UCL Accommodation have now made it clear that they will be making the situation worse for many students here by pushing on with their planned rent increases and refusing to even ask UCL for an expanded budget for student accommodation…
But this week we are fighting back!
There will be a meeting to plan and organise a united campaign to force UCL management to change their priorities and stop their relentless exploitation of students in halls. This is the first time for many years (if ever) that a similar campaign against the callous landlords of UCL has been undertaken on campus, and it might be the moment when the tables turn in favour of students’ interests and not the bosses’ surreptitious plans.
Join in what might become a historic campaign! Find all the details for the meeting here.
No rent exploitation!
