Most universities lower student accommodation costs

Colleges in Ireland have lowered the cost of campus accommodation for the first time in decades, with students due to spend less time there, writes Gabija Gataveckaite for the Irish Independent.

Trinity College Dublin is the only university to increase rent costs due to an extra four days on campus as semester one has been extended. However, Dublin City University, University College Dublin, University College Cork and the University of Limerick have all lowered campus rents.

Maynooth University and National University of Ireland Galway did not lower their costs and kept rents the same price for the coming academic year as they were for the 2019-20 academic year. None of the Irish universities have ruled out rent hikes for the 2021-22 academic year.
