UCD STUDENTS’ UNION TO MARCH AT NATIONAL STUDENT PROTEST AND RAISE THE ROOF RALLY TOMORROW


UCD Students' Union will be taking part in the National Student Lockout and the Raise The Roof on Wednesday, October 3rd. This protest will highlight the dire accommodation crisis faced nationally by students. No home equals no education.


In light of this crisis, we are calling on the government to provide four things:


  • More reasonably priced student accommodation 

  • Protection for students living in "digs" accommodation through legislation

  • Tenancy rights and rent caps for purpose-built student accommodation

  • Tackling overcrowding in shared accommodation
