The “Save Ustinov” Campaign

Ustinov College is currently destined for relocation from its current Howlands Farm site. Ustinov Graduate Common Room (GCR) and the Global Citizenship Programme (GCP) have written formal letters opposing the move, which can be found here:

GCR Letter to University Council

GCP Letter to University Council

We received two town hall meetings regarding the move, videos of which can be found here:

Town Hall #1:

Town Hall #2:

There were some questions answered at these meetings, but many more left unanswered. The University released an FAQ detailing most of our questions, but the answers were sometimes inconclusive or downright misleading. We’ve written a blog post here where you can see our response to the FAQs!

 

We also staged a protest in order to let the University know exactly how much we care about our home here at Howlands Farm.
