Where do students live in Dublin?

As there are four universities in Dublin, there isn’t one particular area where students live. They tend to be spread across the city depending on where they study and their accommodation preferences. However, generally, students will live in student houses in Stoneybatter, Grangegorman, Ballymun, Drumcondra, Dublin city centre, and The Liberties.

Does TU Dublin provide accommodation?

TU Dublin doesn’t provide student accommodation on campus but there are many student accommodation hubs nearby. Students will typically live in these student hubs in their first year before moving into private student accommodation in Stoneybatter, Grangegorman, and the surrounding areas for the rest of their time at university.

Are bills included in the cost?

Many student houses in Stoneybatter are now advertised with bills included in the price. Where this is the case, your rental price could include electricity, gas, internet, TV licence and water bills and this is clearly stated on the listing. Properties without bills included are also available, giving you the flexibility to choose your own energy and water suppliers and internet service provider.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

It is normal for property managers to require you to pay a security deposit at the time of booking or before you move in. Where a deposit is required and you are signing a tenancy agreement, your property manager must protect your deposit in a legally recognised tenancy deposit scheme. As long as you look after the property and have no deductions for damage or unpaid rent, your deposit will be returned to you after your tenancy agreement ends. Whilst tenancy deposits are legally capped at five weeks' rent per person, it is more common for student deposits to be in the lower £100-250 range.

How long does a tenancy agreement last for?

The majority of student accommodation in Stoneybatter can be rented for fixed contract lengths. For purpose built student accommodation, 43 and 51-week fixed-term contracts are the most common. For shared houses, 52-week contracts are the most common and generally start in July to September.

Do you offer student accommodation for short-term stays?

Short-term student rentals in Stoneybatter are becoming more popular every year. As a result, property managers are increasingly offering shorter tenancy lengths, whether for the summer period or for individual semesters and terms. This is more common in the purpose-built student accommodation sector than in shared student rental houses across Dublin.
