Student Forum Leeds

The Student Forum dates are a time for Unipol's Housing Hub staff to engage with students to answer a questionnaire and look at booklets and the website to provide feedback.

Unipol prepares the areas for discussion and writes the questionnaire but also encourages students to raise issues with us.

Housing Hub staff are deployed in a range of specified locations to talk to students so that they talk to a wide selection of students.

Any issues raised by students are reported back via Unipol's Facebook page and can be viewed and commented on here.

Terms of Reference:

To provide a forum for the student communities in Leeds:

d) provide the student community with an opportunity to comment on the analysis of market conditions in Leeds and to discuss the relevance of this information to other students and how to disseminate this information

e) contribute to the house hunting strategy specifically including publication and web content

f) to discuss matters relating to students and other community members living in the same area and to decide on actions that will improve the living conditions and relationships for all.
