Galway students outraged at Student Accommodation’s €1,000 rent hike


Students at NUI Galway have expressed their outrage at Cúirt na Coiribe’s plan to increase rent by €1,000.

The NUI Galway Students Union is leading the the protest against the student accommodation’s 18% rent hike, publishing an open letter condemning the move.

The letter, co-signed by Students Union President Lorcán Ó Maoileannaigh, says that students’ attention will not be on their next exam, but how they can find an extra €1,000 to ensure they can return to Galway.

An online petition to reverse the proposed rent increase has received 4,000 signatures so far.
