Dear [Landlord/agency/provider], 

Attached is a letter signed both De Montfort and University of Leicester Students Union, urging private accommodation to support students wherever possible.  

I am emailing in the hope you will read and consider this request as many students are struggling with learning from home and feel like they are not getting the education they deserve.  The stress of completing a degree from home is already taking a toll, let alone worrying about trying to afford rent. Especially when many students can no longer work. 

Please consider reducing our rent payments or looking into a more feasible option and follow in the steps of Unite students who are offering rent reductions to students.  

Kind regards, 

[Your name] 

Supported by De Montfort and University of Leicester Executive Officers
