Your experience searching for suitable accommodation may be limited but following the simple tips below will help you make the best decision for you. 

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.

Start looking early

Once your college place is secured, we would recommend confirming your preferred accommodation as soon as possible to beat the competition. Before then, you can start the research process, shortlist your top options and request any information you need. 

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.

Plan a tour if possible

Going to college is a huge milestone for any student so you might want to visit some student living spaces virtually before you commit to a decision. This will give you a chance to ask about the facilities, bookings process and cancellation policy. 

There are many student residences around the city as well as house and flat shares, homestays etc. 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.

There are also many online resources available to students for further reading and support.
