Students are the London School of Economics have launched a crowdfunding campaign to sue their university for allegedly getting ill from their accommodation!


The Independent reports the students allege that their accommodation "became overrun by rats, contaminated with mould and suffered from a broken ventilation system for months"

On their fundraising page, the group of postgraduate students write: "Many students fell ill. Some were diagnosed with upper respiratory tract infections and one resident underwent an open surgical procedure due to skin infection"

Unite Students, who own and manage the building, say they do not accept that their accommodation has been the cause of any illness.

The students aim to reach their target of £5,000 on fundraising website CrowdJustice by 5 August. They have currently raised over £2,000.

What do you guys think of this story? Do you have any accommodation horror stories? Let me know!

If the halls are owned by UNITE then they need to be suing them not LSE?

Because UNITE manage the student accommodation but the building is actually owned by LSE.

So LSE is legally responsible for the 'unforgettable student experience' along with the mould and the rats.

Isn't that like saying you have to return a dodgy microwave meal to the manufactures and not the supermarket you bought it from?
