Josh, Vice President Communities, and Amy, Union President, sit on the University Rent Review Group, where the decision was made that rent on all properties owned by the University of Stirling will have no increase or decrease in rent for one academic year (2021/22).
This has now also been confirmed by University Court.
This means students applying for University accommodation can expect no increase for the new academic year on the current rent costs. It will not include Centro House as this is only part-owned.
Josh, VP Communities, had this to say:
"I'm beyond overjoyed that the University will freeze rent prices for the next academic year. This outcome has been over 3 years in the making since we first negotiated a rent freeze on selected properties for students. This is a great win for students in what has been a very difficult year in terms of their studies, wellbeing and financial situations."
