UCL won’t freeze the rent next year: students who want to come here deserve to know!
UCL rents are far above the average maintenance loan given to people studying here. We want everybody to have an equal chance to attend university. For that to be possible we demand that all student accommodation be made affordable and that UCL should start by freezing its rent at last year’s levels and not raise them to new extortionate highs.
We also demand that UCL meets all the demands of the rent strikes at Hawkridge House and Campbell House and we express our solidarity with the residents there who have been cheated by the university and are bravely maintaining a rent strike in protest.
