After concerns raised by students through our Advice Centre, your Students’ Union has been lobbying Unipol to resolve a situation with Shields Students Homes. The situation has been caused by Shields’ failure to refund students’ deposits or ensure they were protected by a recognised Deposit Protection Scheme.
In light of this, Unipol have now suspended Shields student Homes’ membership pending a tribunal. To find out more, please head to the Unipol website - https://www.unipol.org.uk/news/shields-student-homes-suspended-from-the-unipol-co.
If you have been affected by this issue or by have any related concerns, please contact your Community Officer, Abel or your Students’ Union Advice team.
