Renting and accommodation issues plaguing university students
International students are having a hard time finding suitable accommodation that is close to their university of choice. Many students find themselves in cramped accommodation with multiple people sharing one room. It makes for an uncomfortable lack of privacy. As if life for a student isn’t hard enough, juggling various things to keep afloat, the last thing you want to think about is squeezing into a cramped apartment. Even more shocking is that it is happening right here in Australia.
Leo Patterson Ross, Senior Policy Officer with the NSW Tenants Union spoke to Nic about why this is happening and what can be done to solve it.
