Fret Not, Freshers: We Still Have Room At The Inn!

Posted by Emma Henderson on 31 July 2014


Finding student accommodation in Dublin can be stressful – especially if it’s your first time around.

With CAO offers just a few weeks away, the reported student accommodation crisis means that some students are encountering difficulties in finding a place to live. 

For first years and their families in particular, this is an unwanted additional worry at a time of uncertainty and change. 

That’s why National College of Ireland reserves a portion of on-campus accommodation for our first year students – despite the rest of our rooms booking out within two hours of applications being opened.

The deadline for NCI first year applications is August 31st and we’d encourage you to come, take a look around and get a feel for the accommodation and campus. 

They’re right beside each other, in the heart of the city-centre – so you can roll out of bed and into your lecture, should you choose! 

Don’t worry about sharing a bedroom or bathroom, either: each student is allocated their own, en-suite study bedroom  – no more fighting over the shower – and shares a generous sized living space with their flatmates, which includes a fully fitted kitchen/dining area. 

Student accommodation at National College of Ireland is €5,460 for the academic year, plus a €300 deposit. Utilities are €5 - €10 per person per week. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions for more, or find out how to apply
