Living at UCD

UCD has beautiful on-campus accommodation, consisting of a single bedroom with options of both private and shared bathrooms. Apartments are equipped with kitchens, and fully catered packages are available. Adapted facilities are available for students with a disability.

Places are limited and we regret that we are unable to guarantee accommodation to all international students.

Please visit UCD Residences to explore all of our options and the facilities available at our accommodation, and for details on pricing, packages, and the Res Life social programme.

Allocation and Application

Ireland’s largest university campus, UCD is a vibrant student community with over 3,000 students living on a state-of-the-art campus only 5km from Dublin city centre. UCD seeks to guarantee first year undergraduate international students (from outside the EU) on-campus accommodation, as we recognise that you may need a little more support to get started at UCD. However, this depends on demand so may not always be possible. Students are required to have accepted their course offer and paid the deposit in order to book on campus accommodation (subject to availability).  Students, with a conditional accept for their course, are eligible to book a room. Application is made online via the Incoming Student Portal. Communication will be sent to you regarding on-campus accommodation in early summer and this will include details of application dates and deadlines.

I really enjoy the on campus housing. It's also super safe, I think UCD in general is a very safe campus. I've never worried about there walking by myself late at night because it is in a very nice area and they've really great security.
