Compensate East Slope Students for lack of Hot Water, Heating and Wifi
In the first term of living in East Slope Residences, the majority of students, particularly in Camber, have complained that the housing is not in a fit condition for students to live in. This stems from lack of heating (which breaks sometimes multiple times a week), no hot water (which lasted almost a month in October), and wifi that cuts out every few hours (which students desperately need to study). Despite many residents calling and emailing the East Slope Team, there has been little to no action, and sometimes the best they can offer is an apology. Considering East Slope residents pay upwards of £159 a week and do not have access to heating, hot water or wifi, it is unfair that we are expected to have paid for these non-existent utilities. Park Village, for example, possess all basic utilities and only pay £91 per week. It is unfair to be living with partial heating, partial hot water, and weak wifi. Many students have complained of illness in their first term due to having cold showers, or having to sleep without heating. This is unacceptable, and it is affecting our health and wellbeing.
This petition is for those who want their voice heard. We demand compensation for the lack of care or action that East Slope has provided. Once signed, this petition will be sent to the managers of East Slope for their consideration.
