Dear Ms Bowling,  
 
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST – REF: FOI-119-20  
  
I refer to your Freedom of Information request for information received by the University 
of Wolverhampton on  13 July 2020, in which you requested access to the following 
information, specifically: 
 
In light of the Covid-19 outbreak I would like to ask about how safe you're making 
your accommodation for students. Specifically: 
 
1) What are you doing to make the accommodation safe for students in 2020/21? 
2) What occupancy rates are you going to have in shared accommodation for 
September 2020? 
3) How are you going to maintain social distancing in shared accommodation? 
4) What data or research has led to your decisions? 
5) How are you helping students who may not have accommodation to find other 
places to stay in the city for September 2020? 
 
Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of Information 
Act 2000
. You will receive a response  by  10 August 2020, in accordance with the 
statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act. In some circumstances 
we may be unable to achieve this deadline. In this instance you will be informed and 
given a revised timescale at the earliest opportunity. 
  
There may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and provision of the information 
you request. You will be informed accordingly if a fee is applicable and the 20 working 
day timescale will be suspended until we receive payment from you. If you choose not 
to make payment then your request will be withdrawn. 
  
Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to another public 
authority in order to satisfy your request. You will be informed  if your request is 
transferred to another public authority. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 



 
 
Should you have any enquiries regarding your request for information, please do not 
hesitate to contact legal services via email at xxx@xxx.xx.xx.  
  
  
Yours sincerely
