The lack of campus accomodation for returning students is absolutely ridiculous. I’m on a years placement, with no chance of being able to move in with friends (as they’re all graduating next year) so I either have to move in with people I don’t know, or rent a flat on my own. Either way my results will suffer as I’ll either be working part-time for more hours, or fighting with a bunch of equally disgruntled people I don’t really know.
The uni should make more of an effort to arrange housing for people with nowhere to live – I’m not suggesting that they subsidise us, but it’d be nice to have a little help just FINDING somewhere!
