Housing

You will stay in student dorms or private apartments in Dublin. Once accepted into the program, you can apply online for campus housing, or contact the university’s housing service and/or a local real estate agent. The advantage of choosing one of the student residences is that you can finalize your housing before you leave and you’ll be living with other students. Short-term leases can be hard to find in Dublin, so if you need extra time the university has temporary accommodations you can use for up to two weeks.

Apartment

Most students rent a single bedroom in a shared apartment in a mix of student-friendly locations around the city. The Trinity Students’ Union advertises available accommodations and can help advise you how to find a suitable apartment, but you’ll be doing all the work of contacting and interviewing landlords yourself.

Commute

Dorm

You can choose from various student dorms around Dublin, but you’ll likely be advised to choose between two. Share a cup of tea on the rooftop terrace of Kavanagh Court. Be greeted by the resident cat at Binary Hub. Both halls have shared kitchens and modern study spaces as well as secure bike storage and modern gyms. Couches, televisions, games and pool tables fill the shared lounge rooms.
