Dear Freedom of Information,
I am requesting an internal review at the University of York. I requested 'The current price of all student accommodations provided by the University and the current price of all student accommodations provided for
University of York students by private providers. If possible please provide as a spreadsheet.'

In their response the University at York referred to their website with a link that does not work. I would like the spreadsheet I requested and a link that does work.

Yours sincerely,

Thomas Ward

Dear Thomas Ward,
Following investigation into your requests F19/250 and F19/259 (for which
you have requested internal reviews), I have established that a software
fault within WhatDoTheyKnow's website has caused the links which we
emailed to you to become corrupted. This is the reason why you have been
unable to access the information which we have provided.
I have raised this issue with WhatDoTheyKnow's support team, who have
provided the correct links for you to use as a comment upon your requests,
whilst they investigate and fix the root cause of this issue.
Given that you should now be able to access the information, please can
you advise whether you still require us to conduct an internal review for
each of these requests, or whether you are satisfied that we can close
these requests?
Yours sincerely,

Dear University of York,

Thanks for clearing up these issues with the links. Whilst I would have preferred a spreadsheet and not had to create one myself, I will not be pursuing an internal review in this instance.

Yours sincerely,

Thomas Ward
