The student representative body will gather outside the Dail this afternoon to launch their pre budget "Fight For Your Future Now" campaign.
Students from across the country are expected to attend today's event, which will see the launch of a 'high-tech' voter data base from September.
Joe O'Connor, is the President of the USI, said the organisation wants access to the data to contact students directly
"We want to ensure that the students who are on the votal register, that we can directly contact them and keep them informed about the campaign itself, and about the positions of the government and political parties on issues that students care about," he said.
"Students up and down the country are sick of the measures and the way they've been treated over the last number of years."
