Student Residence Accommodation is specifically designed for students and is the only type of long-term housing you can arrange before you start your studies. For international students, this means you can have your accommodation sorted before you land in Ireland, saving you the hassle of searching for a place once you're here. 

Most student residences around Dublin are modern, recently built, and come with plenty of amenities. You'll find some within walking distance to the university, while others are easily accessible by public transport.
