Information recently obtained by the Guardian has revealed that 24 per cent of York residential accommodation is graded “unfit for purpose”. The University of York had 24 per cent of its accommodation listed as “Category 4” for functional suitability, defined by the HEFCE as “poor, the room/ building fails to support current functions and/ or is unsuitable for current use.” University Press Officer, James Reed, claimed that, since 2007, the University has “spent £36 million in new residential buildings, spent £5 million improving the basic fabric of our existing accommodation and installed new kitchens in our oldest colleges.”
