NUI Galway will hold an information evening for those interested in renting a room or a house to students on Thursday, 21 July at 6.00pm in The View, Áras na Mac Léinn.

The evening will provide free advice and information on how a person can earn up to €12,000 tax free by renting to students and how to ensure a good experience for both the householder and the student. The University will also provide free advertising for the properties.

John Hannon, Director of Student Services at NUI Galway said: “This is a great opportunity; it is a ‘win-win’ situation for the householder, the student, their family and the University. We have really positive feedback from people who have rented a room. It is more than the opportunity to earn income tax free - there is also a social benefit from each other’s company and increased safety for student and householder.”

For further information contact Teresa Kelly in NUI Galway’s Accommodation Office on 091 492364 or email teresa.kelly@nuigalway.ie.
