There have been reports stating that the problem of UK students being unable to find suitable accommodation is rising. The issue has gone out of hand so much that many students find it ‘quite depressing’ to face these challenges.
Why Is This Happening?
The reasons behind these struggles keep changing. The hike in enrolments has resulted in a mismatch between the accommodation available and the students who require a place.
Moreover, according to the reports, rent prices are also rising, which is creating more problems for students who have limited budgets.
The Domino Effect
Students are facing tons of issues with no proper housing. It’s not just about a place to stay; the need for a conducive environment to learn is also compromised.
Such issues are putting students under stress and affecting their academic performance. Some are even thinking of deferring or dropping out.
This problem needs to be addressed immediately by the universities, local council, and government. The government needs to ensure that students have safe and affordable housing. Also, their basic needs are prioritized.
