Living at the Limit
Today, there is a student housing crisis, one like we have never seen before; exacerbated by the overall housing crisis. Students who are near the bottom rung of the housing ladder are now hit with increasing rents on substandard housing. On top of this, the student community is being increasingly victimised as the cause of the local housing shortage, and accused of taking away ‘family homes’.
Last year, we asked you about your experience in renting accommodation in Guildford. What you told us was truly shocking.
We are now calling for our housing manifesto to be implemented without delay.
We need you to do two things -
1. Sign the petition to increase loans with London weighting
Please sign this petition, and ask your family and friends to do it as well
2. Let us send a letter on your behalf, supporting our Housing Manifesto
We need to let the local council, the county council, and the government know what we think - and demand that action is taken.
Add your details, and your story below, and we will add your comments to a letter in your name and send your experience to policy makers on your behalf, to let them know what you think
If the survey does not appear, you can fill it out here -
Please note. We may edit your submission prior to sending, you shall receive a copy of the final text
