Student accommodation providers and landlords must provide full refunds to NUIG students.
Why is this important?
Students were told in an email from NUIG in the summer of 2020 to book accommodation in Galway for the college year, as all students would have time on-campus.
In reality, the vast majority of students have had little or no on-campus activity.
Cúirt na Coiribe and the Westwood refuse to refund students who took out leases in the anticipation that they would need accommodation in Galway. Many of these students have never set foot inside the accommodation which they are renting.
