Use unfilled student accommodation as bookable over-night rooms for students who commute long distances

Extra Information: This would reduce traffic in and out of university. Would encourage use of facilities by these students. Would increase income to university as rooms would not be left empty all term.

10:15pm on 6 Nov 18 I think this is a great idea, although not one I would use on a regular basis as I have a family at home. Although if the accommodation is empty anyways it would be good to increase income - I did look into booking a room at a nearby hotel to attend an event lecture that will finish late evening to then need to be back at uni first thing the next morning but was looking at about £140 for the closest hotel!
