Cllr Jim Codd calls for more student accommodation in the Southeast
Cllr Jim Codd has called for the local authorities to plan for more student accommodation to support the development of the Southeast Technological University. (SETU)
"I would stress that we need to plan for accommodation for students now. It can’t become nearly impossible like in other towns and cities.” Cllr Codd said
After a 10-year process, SETU was formed from the amalgamation of the Waterford IT and IT Carlow. The campus will host around 2,000 staff and over 18,000 learners per annum across the Southeast.
Cllr Codd concluded that the university is a massive opportunity for county Wexford. "This is truly momentous; I’ve been involved in education for over 30 years, and I’ve seen droves of teens leave and struggle to pay astronomical rents in Dublin and other cities.”
