A statement from your Exec responding to the University’s rent rebate announcement

In response to the current lockdown measures and lobbying from LUU and students, the University has committed to refunding a proportion of rent for those who do not have face to face teaching and have not returned to their accommodation.

As an officer team, we welcome the decision to refund some rent for the lockdown period and will work with the university to ensure the rebates are delivered via a timely and accessible process.
