Trinity students have shut down the University and the Book of Kells for over two hours now in response to the introduction of a €450 fee for supplemental exams.
The fee, which has been confirmed to be introduced from 2019, will act as a flat charge for all students resitting exams, no matter how many exams they sit, according to The University Times.
The students have expressed their anger at the situation, and are currently protesting in the college grounds.

The protest is drawing a lot of media attention, with students closing the arch to the college.
The College Board met last week to discuss the matter, despite vocal protests from current and past Trinity students regarding the fees.
The students remain at the gates of Trinity – more as we get it.
