Host Family Accommodation

Thank you for considering hosting a TU Dublin Student. Our students study on campuses in Grangegorman, Aungier Street, Bolton Street, Blanchardstown Campus and Tallaght Campus.


Host Families provide accommodation from September to June, from 5 to 7 nights per week, with one of the following options -

  • Bed and light Breakfast;
  • Bed Breakfast and Evening Meal;
  • Self-Catering

In some cases, students may only need 3-nights’ accommodation.

Cost per Week

Average weekly charge ranges from €155 to €220 per week depending on the services provided.

Please note: International students require 7 days accommodation for a full academic year, September to June.

The annual exemption limit for Rent-a-Room Relief income is €14,000. Any amount under this figure is exempt from tax.
