WATCH: Ireland’s Student Accommodation Crisis

Here in Ireland we have the highest participation in third level education in the EU. However this has become overshadowed by a student accommodation crisis which is causing a huge amount of stress and financial burden to young people and their families throughout the country. USI have reported that 58% of students go without 1 meal a day in order to cut costs and to be able to afford to stay in college. To solve this issue we could create a bank fund for universities to build more housing for their students and also start to decentralize third level institutes to outside our cities.
