Housing

You can choose between various student dorms or stay in a private home or apartment in Dublin. 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 study center may be able to provide a list of options but you will also want to contact a Dublin real estate agent for support.

You can rent a room (single or shared) in a privately owned house or apartment. The study center recommends choosing a residence on the south side of Dublin or in the city center for the least commute time.
