Against a 6% rise in Halls fees

Could you afford £400 extra a year That's what students in Goldsmiths Halls next year will be paying. College management are intending to increase Halls fees next year by 6% - the largest increase in decades. Given the recession and rising cost of course fees how do management expect students to pay Many students will simply be out-priced. For new students next year relying solely on a Student Loan, a place in halls in October will be out of the question. Lots of students already have to juggle course requirements with part-time jobs and an increase of £400 a year will result in students either taking on more hours and their education suffering or halls becoming filled with one particular economic strand of students with the money to afford the expense. Sign the petition and most importantly leave your email address so we can get in touch to get involved with the campaign. See below for details of the proposed increases to specific halls of residence: Batavia Mews £85 (this year) = £90 (09/10) Chesterman House £114 (this year) = £121 (09/10) Dean House £114 (this year) = £121 (09/10) Loring Hall £114 (this year) = £121 (08/09) Raymont Hall £103.50 (this year) = £110 (08/09) Surrey House Annexe £109 (this year) = £121 (08/09) Surrey House £88.90 (this year) = £95 (08/09)
