The SRC’s Student Housing Department works to support students with the issues they face regarding housing. The Student Housing officers lobby the University to ensure they are aware of the housing issues students experience and act accordingly to support students in addressing these issues. The Student Housing department works to ensure that students have access to temporary and emergency accommodation and that these services are expanded to meet the needs to students.
The Student Housing Officers remain in contact with Student Accommodation Services and other relevant committees throughout the year to ensure we are up to date on current policy and procedures relating to housing. This ensures the SRC is aware of any changes to student accommodation so that it is able to lobby for students if necessary.
Student Housing officers work through the minefield of institutional bureaucracy so students don’t need to. Instead, students can reach out to the SRC and the Student Housing officers to answer their questions about accommodation on and off campus including queries related to issues that may arise with roommates, managers of accommodation or landlords. The Student Housing Officers are a friendly and approachable first point of contact for students facing housing troubles.
