NUI Galway Students’ Union and GMIT Students’ Union write:
“As luxury student accommodation appears across the city, it seems students would be better off taking out a mortgage instead of renting in the current climate.
“Today, NUI Galway Students’ Union and GMIT Students’ Union have strongly criticised prices of ‘luxury’ student accommodation popping up across the city.
“This comes after new student accommodation has been advertised on the market at €250 per week in the city centre and from another complex directed towards students on Bohermore at a price of €200 per week.
“…Both unions, together with the One Galway Movement, are planning a Crisis Campout in Eyre Square on Tuesday the 11th of September to shed light on the need for purpose built student housing and social housing in general.”
