A group of students who want to help UCD achieve University of Sanctuary status, and ensure Ireland achieves its promise of taking in 4000 refugees through student empowerment have formed an online forum which now hosts 441 members.
The group appeared online in late January and have already held an information coffee morning and an information talk on the refugee crisis.
The description to the event reads "This semester we are striving to create more awareness on the Refugee Crisis. We have a number of plans and Ideas aimed at amalgamating many of the different societies in UCD in order to create a unified movement within the university. This coffee morning is our first official event of Semester 2. It will provide us with the perfect space to discuss, plan and inform. Come down to get involved or just to show your support"
