The Government has announced building is to start on hundreds of student accommodation units.

521 beds are on the way in DCU and Maynooth University in the coming months.

More projects are planned for UCD and Trinity College Dublin, while technological universities will be able to apply for projects this month.

Higher Education Minister Simon Harris says these new beds will be coming on stream in 2026:
