Higher university tuition fees likely to damage economies of university towns

A report by the Centre for Cities says student spending accounts for 10% of the economic activity of some cities.  Most dependent on student revenue are: Cambridge, Plymouth, Coventry, Oxford, Dundee, Swansea, Hull, Brighton, Stoke and Nottingham. Nottingham on its own receives over £500 million in income, from student sources, and these ten cities collectively obtain nearly £3.5 billion.
