The SRC has responded to the Scottish Government's Consultation on a new tenancy for the private rented sector by arguing for a fairer approach to rent setting in the private sector that will make rent levels more affordable to students. In the response we state that while some rents may be proportionate to the landlords mortgage on the property "this cannot be the sole criterion to determine rent levels, even if it means the landlord may be operating at a loss."
We know that main campus is crowded this time of year with essays due and exams coming up fast, so the SRC has been working hard to get some extra spaces for you to study in.
Exams are tough on any student so we have a programme of events to give you exam tips, relieve stress or even provide you with an excuse for a wee bit of procrastination – all for a good cause of course.
The action which will involve UCU (University and College Union) members at the University of Glasgow, and 69 other UK Universities, is due to be carried out until further notice. Representatives from the UCU are due to meet with university employers to negotiate an alternative on 7 November.
