Disruption Diary

Disruption Diary - Your evidence for compensation


At the last strike, Goldsmiths saw over 1000 complaints - the most in the country. We learned that for students to have a better chance of receiving compensation, they need to document everything they have missed and all experiences of disruption - to then complain after the strike ends to stand the strongest chance. Make sure you keep copies of any associated evidence of disruption, such as train tickets.


Please make a copy of this document and fill it out in as much detail as possible through the strike period. We also have group sessions during the strike period where you can speak to an adviser about the formal complaints process.  


In the meantime, please apply pressure on the warden by emailing them via this template.
