Accommodation

Halls of Residence

Summer School participants will stay at Queen's Elms Halls of Residence (Elms Village), a modern, purpose-built village community. Rooms are private, fully furnished and centrally heated, with internet access and all within a short walk of the main university.

You will be booked in from the Sunday evening 21 July until Friday night 9 August 2013 inclusive - checking out on Saturday 10 August at 10.30 am. (20 nights accommodation in total).

If you wish to stay extra nights at Queen's Elms either before or after the Summer School dates above, this must be booked and paid for separately by the participant.  Contact Orla O'Kane at o.okane@qub.ac.ukIt is important you inform her that you are part of the Institute of Irish Studies International Summer School.

Accommodation will be in either single rooms (with washhand basin only, shared bathroom with other single rooms) or in single ensuite rooms (with private toilet and shower).  Rooms are grouped together in units of 10-11.  Please note double rooms are not available.

Internet access is available in each bedroom for residents bringing their own laptops (prior notice is required).  At the present time wi-fi is not available in bedrooms.

Wi-fi is available in the student centre (known as the Treehouse) and a considerable number of computers are provided in the basement area (The Lounge) for general use.  The Lounge area can also be used for general relaxation.  The Treehouse is open until approximately 10.30pm each evening.

Bed linen (changed mid-stay) will be supplied including duvet and pillow.  Towels (changed every 3 days), kitchen pack (crockery, cutlery,  etc) and a toiletry pack will also be provided.  Face cloths/flannels are not provided.

A cooked breakfast (cereal, toast, bacon, sausage, egg, potato bread, soda bread, tea/coffee and juice) will be available each morning.  Breakfast is normally served between 8.00–9.30 a.m.

There is also a self-service laundry (equipped with washing machines, dryers, irons and ironing boards) loated in the Treehouse .

A shop is on site in the Treehouse with restricted opening hours during the summer but a general supermarket is only a few minutes away from the Elms Village.

For students, Queen's Elms is the sensible choice.  It is ideal for making friends, settling quickly into university life and is situated 15 minutes walk from the main campus.  The site is in a quiet location (with 24 hour security) yet only two miles from the centre of Belfast, four miles from George Best Belfast City Airport (with connections to London Heathrow), 20 miles from Belfast International Airport and three miles from ferry terminals.
