Computer chair in my accommodation room broke - HelpWatch this thread
So I have an issue with my university right now. The computer chair in my room in my flat unexpectedly broke one day when I sat down on it, one of the computer chair legs just snapped. I complained to accommodation services because I wanted my chair replaced but now they want to charge upwards of £150 to replace it, even though the chair they gave me was old and used in the first place. I’m currently trying to contest it, but they’re blaming me for the breaking because, and I quote, the chair legs ‘simply do not break’ (yes I wish I was joking) - I really don’t have that kind of money to pay and I’m worried I’ll have to pay out of my own pocket because one of my flat makes lost our letterbox keys and if I have to fit the bill for this chair, my deposit will be effectively wiped out.
This is a really really stressful time for me so if there’s any advice anyone could give I’d really appreciate it
