Home > Seminars > Webinar – COVID-19 and University Students: Renting a room you can’t use

This webinar has now taken place. You can find the presentation slides and a link to the webinar recording in our resources tab or by clicking here.

—————————————————————————

With most universities now adopting remote learning and students being actively discouraged from returning after the Christmas/New Year break, many students (and their parents) are wondering why they are continuing to pay rent for university accommodation. The issue has already attracted the attention of the Competition & Markets Authority and numerous MPs. In this webinar, barristers from Landmark Chambers examine the issues involved and outline possible remedies.

**This event will be hosted as a webinar. Participation is free of charge however, advance registration is required. Please note that participants will receive the joining instructions by email prior to the webinar.**
