To make things a little easier we’ve asked continuing & final year students for their hard-won advice this year. The response has been massive.
Ahead of the 2014/15 academic year, we lobbied Government for a tax incentive scheme to kick-start construction of student accommodation. At that point, the situation in the capital was at crisis point for the second consecutive year— UCD students were being forced to defer their studies or seek out emergency accommodation for the first few weeks in city hostels. Others had to start the year with an unsustainable commute.
Get to know the new team and how they will be working for you this academic year.
UCD adjusted rates & allocation for on-campus accommodation during summer exams last year. Priority was given to new entrants to UCD (first years & internationals) and prices were increased dramatically for the second consecutive year. University Management made this decision unilaterally and then chose a disastrous time to communicate it.
