We need the collective power of our students and their families to help us pressure the government on the issue of private rent refunds.

I know that the start of 2021 will have hit hard for many of you, and the impacts are also being felt here at our SU. Following Government Covid-19 guidance our SU building remains closed during the current lockdown period. However, we have always been more than just a building.

Whilst the University and some purpose built student accommodation have refunded rent to students for weeks pre and post Christmas impacted by government restrictions, those living in private accommodation have not received the same support.

We want our students to have the option of being released from their rental contracts, or be given financial relief whilst they are unable to use their accommodation.

We have created template emails to copy, paste, and email to your local MPs; one for students, and another for parents / guardians, and all your relations. We need this to reach as many constituencies around the country as possible, and need your help to do it.

Please find your MP’s email address, copy and paste the appropriate template below, and CC in forgottenstudents@sheffield.ac.uk.
