Universities UK’s response to NUS’ open letter on student renters

Universities UK and our members are working hard to support all students and ensure that no-one is unfairly impacted by the Covid-19 virus.

 

Recently we received an open letter from the National Union of Students with five ‘asks’ of universities who own and/or manage student accommodation. UUK shares the union’s commitment to ensuring student renters are protected and supported by their universities and government through this crisis and we have responded to this letter in full here:
