But IC halls are going up again this year aren't they? I heard 15%

International Hall - I got an email from Chris Piper, the ULU President, this afternoon to say that the Inter-collegiate Accomodation Committee had just met and, after some fierce debate, settled on a compromise increase of 8.5%.

IC halls - the increase has yet to be set by the Rector. The recommendation from the Rector's Committee on Student Residences is 6%, again a compromise - some members of the committee were pushing for upwards of 10%. The increase is based on staff costs rising around 5% (due to new College pay arrangements) and the need to fund on-going refurbishment.

I'm sure that Beit rooms for the single ensuite uncatered are approx. 120/wk - can another increase really be justified for Beit?
