SUSU is giving students the chance to win a £100 West Quay voucher for answering two quick questions about your landlords. Whether you have something good or bad to write about, SUSU wants to hear it to compile reviews for it’s new SUSU Lettings service.
Following an offer that saw students able to receive £50 for recommending a suitable landlord, this scheme gives the chance for one lucky student to win £100 to spend in the nearby West Quay shopping centre, which will likely prove useful with just five shopping weekends left until Christmas.
In recent years there has been plenty to be said on the subject of landlords among students. From students who feel like they’ve struck gold with their digs, to others who have horror stories of damp infestations to share, all students feel something about the place they call home during their time here.
Previous campaigns from SUSU regarding student houses include the ‘Don’t Rush’ campaign that reminded students that there is no need to sign contracts for housing until after the Christmas break or later. Student lettings agencies frequently try to create the illusion of a housing shortage to get as many of their properties signed as early as possible. This means students rush in to decisions before getting to know their housemates or the reputation of the agency.
The competition closes on the 30 of November, to enter before that time all students need to do is go to susu.org/housing and click the link to the questions.
