LYIT to publish revised timetables this evening

The Union of Students in Ireland says the Government must support student renters due to new restrictions in colleges.

It's after Higher Education Minister Simon Harris announced most students have to do their courses online for the next three weeks.

Colleges and universities across the country have also been told to strictly limit those on campus.

Letterkenny Institute of Technology says revised timetables for Monday will be published from 5pm this evening, with revised timetables for the remainder of the week will be posted on Monday afternoon.
