Ukrainian refugees, who are currently living in college accommodation, will be moved off-campus before the academic year begins.

That's according to the Higher Education Minister, who says the Department of Integration is working to relocate refugees and leave rooms available for incoming students.

Minister Simon Harris says third level accommodation isn't appropriate for fleeing families on a long term basis.

"I think it is important that student accommodation is for students and it's important that families and children can live in an environment that is appropriate to them.

"We all know that this challenge isn't easy and it's something we're all morally bound to accept but it's not acceptable that you'd have a child in a student accommodation facility."
