How we are lobbying private landlords

No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

We know this time is very difficult for our students and we are doing our best to lobby for you. 

We have successfully lobbied for third semester rent cancellations for on-campus accommodation. Now we are lobbying to ask private landlords to help reduce your financial pressures.

So far a letter has been written by your President Rida and sent to the MP.

The officer team have spoken to the Vice-Chancellor about the University lobbying the private landlords and we are hoping to see what position the university takes in a couple of days.

We are continuing to lobby with the private providers directly, asking if they can help students in the time of need.

Although we are doing our best to fight for this we also want our students to understand that we have little or no say over what private landlords do. All we can do is lobby for this, which we will continue to do. In this case, unless a provider agrees to release students from their contracts, they are still liable to pay for the remaining of their time.


Your amazing advice and support team are here to help you if you have any queries about your private rental agreements. 

Call them on 01707 285022 or email advice@hertfordshire.su


We will share any updates on this matter on our social media and here on our news page.
