A Cambridge student was left in tears after seeing her new $235-a-week room accommodation full of pieces of furniture and dirt.

Anglia Ruskin student Georgia Sayward went back for her second year to study criminal investigation, only to be greeted by disappointment.

The 19-year-old’s mom Frances recently drove her to the rented pad, hoping Sayward could unload and settle in before school. They even thought that the room would be nice and secure by the time she came.

However, there were scraps of furniture piled up in her room, almost reaching the ceiling. A supposed bed could not even be seen from the mess. Sayward said:

“I spent all day crying because they were telling me I could either go and live in a house by myself or stay down here until they get my room sorted - but we don’t know when that will be.”

According to Frances, her daughter was not notified about the room before arriving and already deposited the amount to UK Student Houses.

There’s also no security or any place where Sayward could safely store her belongings other than her friend’s room. Meanwhile, the company informed Sayward that the maintenance worker would tidy the room before the weekend.

As it turned out, the company was short on staff, and no one could inspect the living conditions, not just in Sayward’s room but in almost 50 other properties under UK Student Houses. Sayward ended up sleeping on her mattress in the kitchen.

Frances claimed that many other students were at the company’s reception with complaints, such as their keys not working and having a dirty room.

statement

from the spokesperson for UK Student Houses read: “Due to an error with our supplier, we were extremely sorry that the welcome received by this student was below the standard we would usually deliver.”

According to the school’s headteacher Andy Bryers, the cameras would monitor what went on in bathrooms to prevent bullying and vandalism.

UK Student Houses also said that their team worked to solve the problem immediately and would ensure that other students experience tremendous satisfaction.

Recently, another parent in England looked after the welfare of their child and the other students at school by complaining about a new policy.

County Durham’s parents were furious that the administration placed CCTV cameras inside the students’ bathroom for safety reasons.

According to the school’s headteacher Andy Bryers, the cameras would monitor what went on in bathrooms to prevent bullying and vandalism.

He reassured parents that privacy would not be breached since the cameras only capture the wash area. Some students previously felt unsafe in washrooms as most of the bullying took place there.
