You are responsible for finding your own accommodation in Dublin, as NCI does not own or manage a student residence. Finding the right accommodation at the right price and location is one of the biggest challenges you might encounter as a student, but our preparation guide, accommodation information on
our website and guidance from office staff will help you find a place.

Start your research as early as possible

Once your college place is secured, we would recommend confirming your preferred accommodation as soon as possible to beat the competition. There are many student residences around the city as well as house and flat shares, homestays etc.

Where to start your research

We have compiled information on different accommodation options available to you to help you choose which suits you best, so please check out our webpage here.

Work out your budget

Be clear on how much you can afford before you start your accommodation search. Dublin can be an expensive city to live in so make sure you’re informed of the estimated cost of living.

Check public transport

As NCI is based in the heart of Dublin, there are many student accommodation residences within walking distance of the college. Don’t worry if you decide to live outside the city centre as our campus can also be easily accessed by public transport via bus, rail, or tram. 

Our recommendation

We strongly recommend students book student residence accommodation.
There is a large number of student residence accommodation in Dublin. All of these can be
booked in advance from your home country. They are safe and comfortable places to live in with great facilities such as common rooms and gyms. Most of the residence buildings are in walking distance or with very good transportation links to NCI.
