The Student Society of Divine Dwellings

As a result of the housing crisis in Ireland today, accommodation for students is in high demand. Rental laws are in place but are often not enforced, leaving landlords with lots of power and students with very little. Rental rights and education are not taught to students and are relatively invisible on college campuses. The Student Society of Divine Dwellings is an organisation to educate and empower students in Ireland on their renting rights. We believe that through legal literacy and fantastical foresight we can create divine dwellings for all student renters in Ireland. The society releases a publication covering a different rental topic each month to educate students in an engaging, entertaining way. The publication is available for free on all college campuses. By understanding our rights and obligations as tenants, students can create joyful renting experiences, ensuring both tenants and landlords live happily ever after.
