On Campus Accommodation

Prospective students are advised to book accommodation early to avoid disappointment.

There are a number of options open to incoming First Years so it is advisable to contact the Accommodations Office in the College of your choice.

Many First Years will be happier knowing they have on campus accommodation and don’t have to worry about transport or security. A deposit is required to register – usually €250 approx. This is refundable but some institutions will keep €100 to cover administration costs.
