We hosted a town hall meeting between residents and housing administration in October to discuss concerns about the annual rent increases. The minutes have been posted online and they have provided written answers to some of our questions. Since the initial meeting the TA Board has worked closely with housing CFO Martin Shumaker and others to reach a solution. Keep your eyes peeled on the current projects for the latest information. If you would like to be directly involved with solving the rent issues, then please email: ucsbtapresident@gmail.com
