Bristol University Students Protest Increasing Accommodation Costs With Rent Strike
Students at Bristol University are refusing to pay rent, claiming campus housing costs are excluding working class teens from the uni.
According to campaign group Bristol, Cut The Rent, the university has increased the cost of living in halls of residence by an average of 4.5% in the last year and is set to do so again by 3.5%.
“Bristol should be an inclusive university,” a spokesperson for the group told HuffPost UK. “Your financial background should not determine your chance to study at a good university.”
