Universities leaving first-year students with nowhere to live

Posted by in category: futurism

First-year students have been left without accommodation at several universities as they prepare to start degrees next month.

Undergraduates at the University of Glasgow, Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and the University of the West of England in Bristol (UWE) were told this month that they would have to find their own accommodation owing to a lack of space in halls, according to the Financial Times.

At UWE, students were offered accommodation in Newport, Wales, nearly an hour away from the main campus in Bristol. It mirrored a situation last year at universities including York, which was forced to offer students accommodation in Hull.
