If we wish as a society to see more students enjoying the privileges and benefits of higher education, we must recognise that this involves a price. It seems, not unreasonably, that the taxpayer is not prepared to pay this price, or has other priorities (such as nursery education). The alternative is to see whether it is possible to use the same amount of money as at present more effectively.
One way of doing this would be to encourage students to live at home, allowing money being spent on additional short-term student housing to be spent on the more central parts of the educational process. Alternatively, students might be able to borrow less.
