Following a session with The Student Engagement Partnership (TSEP), commuting students can now book overnight stays in University accommodation at a student friendly price.
The suggestion was put to VP Southend Ernest Nyarko who supported the idea and the SU have worked with the University accommodation team to make this happen. Commuting students can now book accommodation online for a student friendly price of £23.15, that's cheaper than Airbnb and local hotels!
Change doesn't just happen. These wonderful people made it:
Southend Course Reps
VP Southend Ernest Nyarko
The Southend SU & University accommodation teams
The idea was raised at the National Course Rep Conference and discussions were held between the various parties involved
The new accommodation arrangements went live on the University website
