Mature Students

  • Anyone over... say 21 is a mature student.
  • In relation to property a group of mature students e.g. PGCEs get along fine.
  • Compatibility issues are likely to arise when younger and older students share a property.
  • Younger students are more likely to want to play loud music and want to return home late potentially disturbing their older housemates.
  • Discrimination on the grounds of age is allowed.
  • Some wisdom is required to avoid incompatibility.
  • Imagine a group of young girls seeking a tenant to join them.  If they were unable to discriminate they might be forced to share a house with a pensioner - neither party would likely be happy with that.
  • So some discrimination is acceptable.
