KCL housing 'wall of shame'

King's College London Socialist Students held a 'wall of shame' at the university about the terrible conditions faced by students both in halls of residence and renting privately in London.

One student said their flat was infested with mice and another's is infested with silverfish. A whole floor of one building had to be moved because of bed bugs last year.

Private tenants complained they either couldn't afford to move out or struggled to pay the rent. One brick on our wall said: "Tiny rooms! #PrisonCellOnABudget".

Another student's fire alarm was broken and the landlord had refused to fix it. Socialist Students will be using the testimonials collected from students to put pressure on the student union and the university to take students' housing problems seriously.
