Petition Action

Enable all students to end university tenancy agreements early due to Covid-19.

Petition Details

Many students are currently tied into expensive agreements for rooms they do not need and would rather not use. Scotland has already legislated for this. We want all students to have the same rights. We were misled into thinking universities would be Covid-safe. The reality is that they are not.

Additional Information

The government has already said that it “encourages universities and private halls providers to be fair in their decisions about rent charges...” We want them to place students at the heart of their decision-making and direct universities to review their agreements and policies to give students:
• a choice of exiting their accommodation agreement early so they can return home
• refunds for the time students are self-isolating
• the option to defer their accommodation rental agreement

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
