Student Charges for the Use of CIT Water

Originally Published on 1st April 2015 as Student April Fools Joke

Cork Institute of Technology wishes to advise students that following the Easter mid-term break, students will be required to pay an additional levy for the use of water supplies on campus.

This follows the first quarterly bills issued nationwide to residents of the state from the beginning of April 2015.

  • Coin meters are currently being installed on all student rest rooms at the cost of €1 per standard flush.
  • Drinking water from public faucets will be charged at a pro rata rate of 50c per litre. 

Students can also register online via the form below should they wish to enable their CIT Smart Cards for cashless billing.
