Say No to the Proposed Accommodation Rates at the University of the West of Scotland's Paisley Campus !!


The aim of this petition is to show the opposition to the proposed increase in price of student accommodation at the sites of Lady Lane and George Street. These properties owned and maintained by the University of the west of Scotland in Paisley are currently offered at a rent of around £55 a week. At present they are in need of refurbishment, however once renovation work is completed in the summer, the prices are set to rise to the following:


George Street

Single room (shared flat)      -   £100/week

Notes :

·        Newly refurbished furnished flats

·        Facilities include, close proximity to campus

·        Fees are inclusive of Gas & Electricity charges

·        Proximity to on-campus laundry facilities

 

Lady Lane


Single room (shared flat)     -   £100/week

Single room flat                   -   £130/week (single occupancy)

                                 -   £150/week (shared occupancy)

Notes :

·        Newly refurbished furnished flats

·        Facilities include, close proximity to campus

·        Fees are inclusive of Electricity charges

·        Proximity to on-campus laundry facilities

In most cases the occupancy will be for £100/week and this would apply to all of George Street. Approx 18 students out of a combined available accommodation across both properties of 160 could be paying £130 in Lady Lane and the £150/ week would effectively be £75 per person. All the properties are being extensively refurbished during the summer 2011.

This refurbishment is needed, but these proposed prises are far too expensive for the average student. Rent prices of £400 - £520 a month are beyond the means of many on a restricted budget.

Please show your opposition to these prices by signing this petition in the hope that we can persuade the university to re-evaluate their position in this matter. Even if you do not live in these flats – please sign up and show your support for your fellow students !

Thankyou
