The decision has been made following increased support for the organisation on social media and the success of a petition calling for a 30 per cent rent reduction.
The petition, which can be found here, has now gained over 4,000 signatures.
This action follows similar campaigns around the country.
In Manchester, UoM Rent Strike has won each student a 30 per cent rent reduction for the first semester, roughly equating to a £900 refund and costing the University of Manchester £12 million.
