Housing

You can choose between various student dorms or a local apartment or private home in Cork. The dormitories fill up quickly, so you’ll want to research your housing options online and apply as soon as you’re accepted. If you choose the private rental market, the university accommodation office will be able to provide a list of options to research online but you may also want to contact a real estate agent in Cork for support.

Dorm

There are various dorms to choose from and each has its own lifestyle, social network and perspective. The apartments in Victoria Lodge have their own contemporary kitchens and living spaces, and the remaining dorms have shared kitchens and large communal living spaces. Alcohol-free, substance-aware and quiet housing options are also available.
