Limerick University Recommend Refunds For Student Accommodation

Michael Lowry TD

The University of Limerick’s Governing Authority has recommended the refund of student in-house accommodation fees.

Tipperary Independent TD Mr Michael Lowry, has received confirmation that the Governing Authority of the University of Limerick (UL) has today recommended the issuing of refunds for all students availing of rented accommodation on the UL campus.

Deputy Lowry, who had first raised this matter of fairness with UL in late March 2020, in his representations to Limerick University, had stated that students and their parents, from his constituency had contacted him to state that the University is the only educational facility in Ireland that is not offering refunds to students relating to their on-campus accommodation.

Mr Lowry had stated back then publicly, that be believed that all students should be refunded, ‘as a matter of principle and good faith’.

Mr Lowry stated that would like to see privately owned student accommodation providers follow in similar vein; also coming to an arrangement with students, in light of the closure of third level institutes back in mid-March.
