Do not make any more changes to an old housing application

Earlier, we provided information on the upcoming changes to the tenant selection process, set to be implemented in week 43, and the resulting impact on housing applications.

Under the new process, applications will be evaluated in accordance with the ARA model, which categorizes applicants based on their degree of urgency. Essentially, housing need, financial status, and income will all be treated as equally significant criteria for prioritizing applicants. When selecting tenants, precedence will be granted to those with the most pressing housing requirements and those with limited financial means.

If an applicant needs to make adjustments to an already-submitted application, they must submit an entirely new application. It's important to note that no additional annexes should be appended to existing applications, as this would impede our ability to place applicants in the correct priority category.

We demand decision-makers to show backbone and eradicate racism

Student unions AYY, HYY, ISYY, JYY, SHS, TYY, TREY, VYY, ÅAS, OYY, LTKY and ArtSU are dismayed at the state of the ongoing racism debate in society and demand concrete measures to eradicate racism. Racist statements made by people in high places have shown what is wrong with racism debate: people targeted by racism are not listened to, racist comments are diminished or taken as a joke, and the debate gets sidetracked. We need anti-racist actions, understanding and solidarity.
