UCD is to hike on-campus rents by 12% over the next three years.

The cost of student accommodation will rise to between €8,000 and €9,900 a year.

The university says it's needed to fund maintenance and new student beds while students are furious..

The News Has Angered Students

Student reps have reacted with anger at the decision by UCD.

Student Union PresidentΒ Joanna Siewierska says it's already expensive and people find it hard to secure a spot.

"We already have the most expensive student accommodation in the country."

"A lot of our first year students rely on the on campus accommodation, especially if they're coming from outside of Dublin."

"This is just going to put additional strain on their families."

"Incredibly Frustrating"

She says students are already finding it hard.

"The University is well aware how important this is to us."

"For them to still turn around and make such an important decision without any consultation."

"It's just incredibly frustrating."

UCD has previously complained about funding.
