HOUSING TOOLKIT FOR COLLEGE MCRS
Mrittunjoy Guha Majumdar, Graduate Union Vice-President, 2018-19
"We are running a housing campaign to ensure postgraduate students are supported and considered throughout university and council discussions relating to accommodation. Our aim is to tackle disparity across the colleges and the lack of consideration offered to postgraduate students. As part of the campaign, a housing toolkit has been developed, with a housing guide, ANUK Compliance quiz and Housing Feedback Form, to facilitate college-based campaigns for rent negotiations and housing campaigning. Besides attaining the Phased Deposit Schemes for private properties being advertised with the University Accommodation Services, we are lobbying for greater transparency on information about housing and living expenses in colleges."
