Answered By:

The definition for the affordable student accommodation rental cost was developed through the work of my Academic Forum which is composed of representatives from the boroughs, universities, private and voluntary sector accommodation providers and students, and is chaired and serviced by the GLA. The National Union of Students is a member of this forum and have been closely involved in the development of the definition of affordable student accommodation and its implementation.
