Dublin is facing a shortage of student housing, after EU regulations imposed in 2013 resulted in the removal of vast swathes of bedsit accommodation in the city.

It's therefore good news that purpose-built student accommodation such as the newly built Binary Hub in Dublin's Liberties will be opening its doors in September.

Provided by The Student Housing Company, the development features en-suite rooms, laundry facilities, a gym, study and common room, wifi, bike storage, landscaped gardens and round-the-clock security.

The building is reportedly the largest purpose-built student accommodation block in Dublin, with a total of 471 beds, each with its own en-suite shower.

According to the CEO of The Student Housing Company, Bob Crompton: "Dublin is a vibrant student city, which clearly requires more student housing".

The Student Housing Company provides over 11,000 rooms across six European cities.

The company has plans to develop its offering in the capital over the next few years and has already purchased two further sites, which will open in 2017 and 2018. The two sites will provide an extra 821 student beds across the city.
