Refunds for University Students
Following weeks of protests, Manchester university students living in halls of residence have been granted a 30% refund on their rental charges, which is the equivalent of a 4-week rent free period.
There are, of course, many other universities across the country who are also under pressure to reduce rents following the huge transition of learning to online.
It is perhaps not unexpected that students who have been “confined to barracks” since being back at university feel that they costs are not as fair as they might have been during a normal semester.
