C# Error CS0053 – Inconsistent accessibility: property type ‘type’ is less accessible than property ‘property’

C# Compiler Error

CS0053 – Inconsistent accessibility: property type ‘type’ is less accessible than property ‘property’

Reason for the Error

You would receive this error when you have a property or field defined in a class where the type is not publicly accessible.

For example, try compiling the below code snippet.

class Student
{
}

public class DeveloperPublish
{
    public Student _Student { get; set; }
  
    public static void Main() { 
    
    }
}

This will result with the compiler error because the Student class is defined as private and is being used as a property in the DeveloperPublish class.

C# Error CS0052 – Inconsistent accessibility: field type 'type' is less accessible than field 'field'

Error CS0053 Inconsistent accessibility: property type ‘Student’ is less accessible than property ‘DeveloperPublish._Student’

Solution

Ensure that the type that you are using in the property/field is public. You can set the access-modifier of the Student class to public to fix this error.
