Far too early to talk about a uni truce
SIR — Surely it’s very early to be reporting a truce, specifically stating that residents have resolved their issues with the university students? (WHT, October 21).
The disruption and all-round uncaring attitude of the student population has yet to be seen as ‘changed’.
Surely the university has a greater responsibility than just to ‘urge’ students to take care and take action only when it can be proven they do not?
We must also not forget the landlords; are they not partially responsible for their tenants?
And let us also not forget the developers and builders who created this situation, overselling houses for letting after promoting a great residential and social housing development — not Student City.
It will take everyone working together over time to see an improvement.
And a lot depends on the students; remember, these are the academics of the future that may be running the country in years to come.

Why do they act like louts?
Or is going to university now seen as a Club 18-30 holiday!?
