Maynooth University Student Accommodation Refund

This petition made change with 477 supporters!


On Monday March 23rd 2020, students living in Maynooth on-campus accommodation received an email from Maynooth University Residences giving an update to the current situation regarding on-campus accommodation in relation to COVID-19. In the email, an early departure form was given for students who have "returned home and do intend to return to your campus accommodation for the remainder of the semester", in wake of the University's decision to suspend all on-campus activities, including lectures, tutorials, facilities and clubs. In the form, it states that students staying on campus are "liable for the rent on your room until such time as the room is resold and the rent has been paid by the new occupant.  If your room is not resold no refund of rent will be made." This policy is extremely disappointing and adds to the existing stress of the current pandemic. Students do not have a need to remain on campus, as the University is closed.
