The rate of cost does not reflect inflation as well as quality dropping in services the ability to get education should be equally available to all

The rent is just not worth what I am getting, and I am an international student, so it makes it worse that I know I’ll have to start working soon in order to help cover my costs, which is going to be really hard to deal with on top of my double major.

Bad conditions and management who only care about money.

Joanne pledges to withhold rent until further notice

It’s really difficult to manage finances especially when I’m an international student. I’m already paying a tuition fee that is 5 times more than a domestic student. I haven’t been able to successfully get a part time job either

Rent is too high

This is way too much to pay for a run-down building. I’m struggling to pay for rent trying to work extra hours for it. Can’t even focus on studying

Rent is too expensive. It's unfair for the vice- chancellor to be paid $755,000 a year and is provided a $5 million house while students have to work 2 or 3 jobs just to have somewhere to live.

Living in the halls of residence not only makes the commute to university easier, but it is also a great way to build potentially lifelong friendships and memories. I would hate to see living in halls as a worse option because of rent increases, especially for people who have no other choice.

Unaffordable rent. Feeling guilty for asking parents to pay the significant rent. Also the rent amount is not match to the residential condition.

Too expensive

Rent is completely unaffordable. I need to work around 20 hours per week to make sure I have enough to pay, taking time out of lectures and studying.

I’m striking because of the ridiculous high and expensive rent we have to pay as single residents who stay in a non-catered accommodation. The rent last year was ok but this year, there was a massive increase to the rent which I believe is detrimental to all residents.

Rent amount is extortionate considering cost of living right now.
