Dundee University’s Student Representative Council (SRC) voted on Tuesday to ban the advertising of payday loan companies on campus. This followed an intensive campaign throughout the month from both the University of Dundee’s Student Funding Unit and Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA).
DUSA’s Honorary Secretary Tim Hustler proposed the motion which stated that the SRC would lobby the University to ensure payday loan companies are not allowed on campus and to urge any students with financial difficulties to contact the University’s Student Funding Unit. The motion was debated by the Council and passed unanimously, showing clear support from students that these companies are not wanted on campus.
Mr. Hustler stated, “Payday loans are a growing problem on campus due to how easy it is to access the forms online with no face-to-face interaction. It was the aim of both our campaign and this motion to encourage students not to use these services and to instead direct them to the financial support offered by the Student Funding Unit who can offer emergency loans and grants, as well as offer advice.”
The Student Representative Council is one of the highest levels of student representation on campus, able to set DUSA policy and lobby the University on behalf of the students. It is made up of fifty democratically elected Councillors representing various constituencies across campus.
DUSA President Iain MacKinnon stated, “It is great to see our student representatives getting involved in real issues which are affecting students not just in Dundee but across the country. With the backing of the SRC hopefully payday loan companies will get the message that they are not welcome here in the University of Dundee.”
