A Mayo Student’s Union Officer at UCD says proposed increases in rent at the Dublin University blocks access to higher education.

 

UCD students held a demonstration against the proposed hikes this morning and members of the SU handed over a signed petition to the President of UCD Professor Andrew Deeks.

 

Rents at the university are currently the most expensive in the country and there are plans to increase them even further by 12.5 per cent over the next three years.

 

Thomas Monaghan is a Ballindine native and Entertainments Officer at UCD and he says the proposed increases are raising the barriers to education.
