Support UC Village Residents’ Opposition to a Devastating Rent Hike

Please click to sign this petition and support the residents of UC Berkeley’s Student Family Housing located at UC Village as they object to an unjust 3% rent increase planned to begin in July.  Tell Residential and Student Services Programs (RSSP) that it is morally reprehensible to balance their budget on the backs of this vulnerable low income population.

Under the planned 3% increases, rents would range from $1,337 to $2,059.  This is not sustainable for student families who are predominantly low income. Last year, a survey conducted by the Village Resident’s Association (VRA) found that 70% of families survive on less than a living wage, with 45% reliant on food assistance.
