Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear University of Salford,

I would like to know more about the nature of the relationship between Salford University and Campus Living Villages.

- Please provide a description of the nature of your business relationship with Campus Living Villages (CLV).
- Please give details of any current Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) with CLV.
- Please provide in full (or redacted where necessary to protect business interests) all contracts between CLV and the University regarding the provision and maintenance of student accommodation.
- Please provide a response as to why the University decided to enter into any LLP with CLV.
- Did University of Salford or any other wholly or partly-owned subsidiary of University of Salford approach CLV initially in respect to potential LLPs, or were these contracts offered to tender?
- Please disclose the framework for rent increases as agreed by the University and CLV within contracts regarding the provision and maintenance of any accommodation in Salford.

Please note that publishing a full or redacted copy of any contract between the University and CLV should not be refused, given that similar requests at other educational institutions that have entered LLPs with CLV have been approved. Given the extended nature of these contracts, they should be open to fair scrutiny and therefore the public interest should be found to lie in favour of their disclosure.

Should this request exceed reasonable costs as specified by Section 12 of the 2000 FOIA, then please release only the information which you believe can be can be provided within the limit of costs.

Yours faithfully,

B Watson

Dear FOI,

I write to confirm that I have received your reply and understand there may be a delay. I am a student of Economics and I am looking into the future of student accommodation. I have sent the very same request to multiple universities listed as partners with Campus Living Villages, this is not a necessarily a direct request to the University of Salford should there be concern over that.

Thanks for your time in advance!

Yours sincerely,

Mr Ben Watson
