Students from North America have a wide range of choices when it comes to finding a modern and comfortable place to live in Ireland. Options include on campus self-catering units or conveniently located private-rental apartments. The most popular choice, particularly in the first year, is on campus self-catered apartments which have individual study/bedrooms (all en-suite) with communal kitchen, dining and lounge areas complete with Wi-Fi. A deposit to reserve your accommodations will be required before the academic year begins and prices will vary between schools depending on the type of housing you require.
Application for campus housing is mainly an online process and is handled through the individual university accommodations offices. If you receive and accept an offer of admission, detailed information regarding the online application process and contact information will be provided, and it will be school specific. Early booking is advised as places fill up quickly.
