With demand for accommodation sky high, SETU want to ensure that their students have the best option available to source accommodation.
Householders or landlords with a room or property to rent are urged to place their ads on the free SETUStudentPad platform now in advance of the start of coming academic year in September.
With an ongoing shortage of rental accommodation, it is anticipated that there will be high demand for lodgings and digs across all three locations. Requirements will include students who want to rent a room mid-week while their course runs, international students here for one semester, apprentices on block study, whilst others may be looking for a room for the full academic year.
Jacqui O’ Connor, SETU’s Head of Accommodation outlines that, “On 25 August, when the Leaving Cert results are announced, we will once again witness a high demand for student housing. The SETUStudentPad
