Dublin homeowners encouraged to rent rooms to students

Students' Unions are calling on Dublin homeowners to rent out their spare rooms.

People can earn up to €14,000 tax free by letting rooms in their main home.

It comes just a month out from the Leaving Cert results when thousands of students will begin looking for accommodation.

The campaign is a joint effort from Trinity College, UCD and DAFT.ie to make more housing spaces available.
