A recent survey of over 2000 students by Save The Student found that 44% of students struggle to pay their rent. 45% of students report that the cost of accommodation impacts on their mental health. A smaller percentage (31%) experience a negative impact on their studies. Students also report problems with the quality of accommodation including damp (38%), lack of heating or hot water (34%) or rodents /pests (18%). An additional issue for some students is landlords taking a long time to get repairs carried out. Around half of students rent from private landlords.
