Socialist Students has launched a petition to build support for its demands on the way forward for the student movement and to solve the crisis in higher education. The petition demands:

  • Rent refunds for students. For 100% rent refunds for any student unable to move into their halls for any reason, with the money for those refunds made up for by the government
  • For the right of students in third-party accommodation or the private rented sector to be released from their contracts. Compensation to the landlords only on the basis of proven need
  • For rent controls! Bring all third party halls into the ownership and control of the universities, as a step towards democratically set rents, decided on by elected committees including students
  • Refund our tuition fees - this year and every year! Fight for free education and make the 1% pay for it
  • For a no-detriment policy to be introduced for assessments affected by the lockdown
  • End all cuts! No attacks on jobs, wages, and conditions on campus to pay for refunds - make the government pay. For student and staff unity against all cuts on campus
  • For democratic trade union and student oversight of all health and safety measures taken on campus to stop the spread of the virus - no trust in vice-chancellors, management or the Tories to handle this crisis in our interests
  • Build a national student movement to fight for the funding our universities need. Scrap tuition fees, cancel student debt, and introduce genuine living grants for students. Fight for fully funded, high-quality and free education
