On campus rent

For those that have no choice and have been stuck on campus, why can’t rent be waived? We didn’t have choice in the matter. But those that did but technically still have use of room don’t have to pay. University camping for off campus but not protecting there own?

For those remaining in Halls, as they are still making use of the services they are still bound by their contracts, thus must pay for the services they receive. We are working with the University Rents Group on addressing rent reductions, but as the University has taken a multi-million pound loss on accommodation, they currently cannot afford to not charge those still in residence, as they still have to pay those cleaning and maintaining the accommodation, and those providing catering.
