London College Dublin Student Residences
Our student residence accommodates up to 150 students in new 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.
The apartments are very spacious and are furnished and fitted out to a high standard. Each
apartment is fully equipped and TV, cable and free internet access is supplied. For the convenience
of students a concierge will be in attendance in the evening.
Finding Your Own Accommodation in Dublin
Most students arrange their first four weeks accommodation in a homestay. During these four weeks,
we highly recommend you start looking for accommodation as soon as possible.
The best place to look is on the DAFT website,www.daft.ie.
Set up an 'email alert'. You can enter the details of the area you wish to live in as well as the price. You will
usually view flats in the evening.
As a general rule, the north side of Dublin is usually cheaper than the south
side. All even-numbered post codes are on the south side and odd-numbered post codes are on the north side.
For further information about living in rented accommodation, please visit the Threshold website,
www.threshold.ie. There is lots of good information
there about renting in Dublin.
