UCD Do the Right Thing - Campaign for Compensation

1128 UCD students, who pay high fees, called on the university to provide them with compensation after the switch to online learning.

150 students wrote directly to UCD asking for compensation.

UCDSU President, Conor Anderson, met with University Management, to request compensation for these students.

The University said NO.

Students are continuing to pay fees of up to €50,000 per year with limited resources and a dramatically reduced student experience.

Here are our stories.

We are asking UCD,

Do the Right Thing.
