DCU Student Union Exposes Ridiculous Rooms Being Advertised To Students

Now is not a good time to be looking for accommodation in Dublin.

The horrific rental crisis coupled with an influx of students looking for accommodation for September means it's a total war zone out there - and some colleges have had enough.

Last week, a member of Maynooth Student Union revealed that he had removed a renting advertisement from the college's accommodation page because it was 'too much to be charging a student.'

Now, a member of DCU Student Union is following in Maynooth's footsteps, exposing ridiculous ads targeted at students.

SU Vice President for Welfare and Equality Aisling Fagan took to Twitter to share a photo of what was clearly a single room, with an extra bed squeezed in.

She wrote: 'This is what we’re dealing with. Landlords charging €500 a head for a room like this. Absolute madness. There’s no way we can approve something like this to be advertised to our students! What is clearly a single room, with another shoved in for a bit of extra €€.'

For €500 a month per head, this is absolutely sickening.
