Appendix 1

I assent, subject always to the following provisions and conditions, to the implementation of a levy upon each student of the College for the purposes of the provision and maintenance of a Student Centre as a locus of student-led activity, for the enhancement of currently available space, and for the development of further spaces within current College space, for the use of the students of the College.  The provisions and conditions shall be:

That the funds collected though the implementation of the Levy Fee be ring-fenced for the purposes of the provision and maintenance of a Student Centre as a locus of student-led activity, for the enhancement of currently available space, and for the development of further spaces within current College space, for the use of the students of the College;

That the Levy Fee shall be collected in twenty-two annual payments of €30.00 per student from the date of its first collection;

That the funds collected in the first two years of the implementation of the Levy Fee shall be used for the enhancement of currently available space, and for the development of further spaces within current College space, for the use of the students of the College;

 

That the funds collected in the remaining lifetime of the implementation of the Levy shall be the purposes of the provision and maintenance of a Student Centre as a locus of student-led activity;

That the Levy Fee shall first be applied only to those students commencing their first or second year of studies at the beginning of the academic year 2017/18, with the exception of those students commencing one-year postgraduate studies to whom it shall apply for those commencing from the beginning of the academic year 2019/2020 onwards;

That all Students deemed to be in financial hardship, as moderated by the Senior Tutor’s Office, shall be exempt from payment of the Levy Fee;

That the Levy Fee shall be overseen by Capitation Committee, or a duly appointed sub-committee thereof, and the appropriate personnel of the Financial Services Division;

That in the initial two year period of the implementation of the levy the prioritisation of the use of the monies for the enhancement of currently available space, and for the development of further spaces within current College space, for the use of the students of the College, shall be jointly developed by the Executives of the TCDSU and DUCSC, and presented to the Capitation Committee for its assent;

That the final configuration of the Student Centre as a locus of student-led activity will be agreed by TCDSU and DUCSC and presented to Capitation Committee for its assent;

That the future provision of the said Student Centre shall not in itself constitute the diminution of the status of House 6 as a locus of student-led activity, or in itself justify a reduction of the total space available for such student-led activities within House 6, or in any way or manner justify a reduction of the total space available for such student-led activities as is available to the Capitated Bodies at the time of the putting of this referendum to the Student body of the College.
