Accommodation for International Students

Your college years are often the most exciting of your life - and where you choose to live can have a big impact on your time in Dublin. Your biggest monthly expense will be for accommodation, and we estimate you should budget for the following:

  • Student residence accommodation: average of €200 - €400 per week (private room), €110 - €200 (shared room)
  • 2-Bed apartment in Dublin: average of €2000 - €2500 per month
  • Private room/studio: average of €600 - €1200 per month
  • Shared room: average of €350 - €600 per person per month

NCI does not own or manage a student residence, nor do we offer an accommodation placement service. That means you are responsible for finding your own accommodation in Dublin.

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.

Dublin and NCI Location 

Dublin is divided into postal areas from Dublin 1 to Dublin 24. The higher the postal code, the further away you are from the city centre. The odd-number areas are located on the north side, while the even-number postal areas are on the south side. NCI is located in Dublin 1

Use Google Maps to check the distance from NCI to the accommodation you are considering. Using Google Maps, you can get the travel time to NCI for walking, cycling and public transport options. Another good website is the Transport for Ireland (TFI) Journey Planner for information on public transport options, travel time and fees from A to B. 

We highly recommend booking Student Residences and to apply early and to multiple locations.
