Student Officers across the city took a stand against Purpose Built Student Accommodation providers with a clear message that any financial burden as a result of COVID-19 should not fall onto students. Following this, students got in contact calling out the Private Landlord Sector (PRS). Due to this the Student Officer teams across the city are now expanding the campaign to cover all landlords in the PRS, making sure the voices of tens of thousands of student tenants are heard.
We are sending a clear message to all landlords in the PRS: take action and protect your tenants.
See the letter that was sent to all landlords in the PRS:
