If you would like to be allocated one of these rooms, please indicate this on your application. Please note these rooms are subject to availability at the time of allocation.
  • Room Type: We have several room options: small standard, standard, en suite, studios and one to six bed apartments for you to choose from (depending on location chosen). You can view our images and 360 degree tours on our property pages.

Finding the accommodation that fits your lifestyle requirements

Accommodation for students wishing to make a specific 'lifestyle' choice is offered in some locations. Please ensure you check the accommodation details when selecting your preferences.

There is a limited availability for:

No alcohol - consumption of alcohol is not permitted at any time in the building

Single Gender- members of the opposite gender are not permitted at any time (this includes guests who may wish to stay overnight)

Quiet Living - you are living with students who have chosen a more study focused environment and noise must be always kept to a minimum.

Irish Language Accommodation - Irish speaking students have the option of living in dedicated accommodation to allow them to continue to develop their language skills and support academic studies.  Preference for places will be for students who are studying full time on a course in which Irish language is taught.
