Broken foundations: Fix student housing
For decades, student housing has been a byword for low quality. Being ripped off by dodgy landlords, living with broken appliances and having to put up with damp and mould are seen as part of student life, to be tolerated and left unchallenged. This report, commissioned by NUS Wales and carried out by Shelter Cymru unpicks some of the myths around students and their housing situations across the Welsh post-16 sector. It is based on a Wales-wide survey run by Shelter Cymru in May-June 2021. The findings help to paint a picture of students’ experiences in the 2020-21 academic year, giving us a better understanding of the issues students face when it comes to having a safe and secure home.
