It's Our Neighbourhood Too!
We play a vital part in our neighbourhoods. We need to ensure that we do all we can to be good neighbours and play our part as citizens. However, with these responsibilities come rights. We have the right to choose where we want to live and to be able to access affordable and good quality housing that meets our needs. We have a right to not be made a scapegoat. There needs to be a recognition that there is no one ‘type’ of student and all students - no matter where they live - are part of a community.
The issue of quota’s for student housing is a complex issue. If you would like NUS to produce any resources to aid your unions work please contact us here.
