FOI regarding accommodation statistics

We're waiting for Millie to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear University of Reading,
I would like to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, how many students weren’t provided with accommodation (not including temporary hotel stays) by the university for the start of term this year and the year before.

Please send me this information electronically.

Yours faithfully

IMPS, University of Reading

Dear Millie

We would like to request some clarification regarding your above referenced FOI request, please.

'Students [who] weren't provided with accommodation' - do you request information in relation to only students to have requested student accommodation or inclusive of students who have not requested student accommodation too?

Please be aware that if compliance with your request would be estimated to exceed the appropriate costs limit established by section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, we may not be able to determine whether we hold the requested information.

Your request is on hold pending receipt of this clarification.

Yours sincerely,

Sinead Latham

Dear IMPS,
I would like to clarify that I am requesting information in relation to only students who have requested student accommodation. Not including students who organised their own accommodation and did not request accommodation through the university.

Yours sincerely,

Millie
