Guesthouses in bath Either that or they are forced to live prohibitively far from university or in situations that are hazardous to their health because they cannot afford anything better.
While plenty of universities are eager to point the finger at the private developers when it comes to cost, the NUS says it is the academic institutions that bath guesthouses are as much to blame for the rise in rents.

Most universities are not being very philanthropic about the way they are building, he says.
I think the guesthouses in bath big question for them is, is there a sufficient range of accommodation so that if students dont want to pay the high end they dont have to? He continues: The problem is if you dont have a clear strategy about retaining low-cost accommodation and that should be for about a quarter of all students there is a danger you knock down the old stuff and slowly over frankfurt guesthouses time you dont have anything affordable to offer.

The NUS is supportive of the move, but has concerns about exactly how the definition of affordable will be determined. It also doesnt solve the issue of affordability elsewhere in the country.
