On-Campus Accommodation for Incoming Students who have entered through the HEAR Pathway 2021/22

UCD Residences offers a variety of room options across several residence villages on the Belfield and Blackrock campuses.


Prices vary depending on the facilities offered in each of the residences, for example private bathroom or shared bathroom options, but all bedrooms are single occupancy, i.e. one person per bedroom.


Merville and Belgrove residences are the shared bathroom accommodation options on the Belfield campus and are priced at the starting point of room rates. These apartments consist of four bedrooms and two bathrooms.


Students entering UCD through the HEAR pathway are offered rooms in Merville and Belgrove as a first option. Priority is given to first year students.

Click here for a list of prices for the 2021/2022 academic year.

Please note there is no discounted rate for students entering through the HEAR pathway so students and families should be aware of the fees before accepting a room. Information about UCD accommodation costs.

For more information please contact residenceroombooking@ucd.ie

On-Campus Accommodation for Students with Physical or Sensory Disabilities 2021/22

UCD Residences have a number of wheelchair accessible rooms available for booking across the UCD Residence Villages. Priority for accessible rooms are given to students with a physical disability (for instance, students with mobility disabilities) or sensory disability (students who are blind/visually impared or students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing), who require the adapted features of the room. Wheelchair users should be advised to choose a room on the ground floor, if possible. Students with temporary injuries are not eligible for an accessible room.

These rooms are available to incoming, continuing, postgraduate students and single trimester students.  If you are international student who requires a room with adapted features please contact UCD Global and the residence room booking team at residenceroombooking@ucd.ie

Please note, if a student requires a full time Personal Assistant who needs to stay in Residences overnight, the student must book a separate room for their Personal Assistant. This room will be charged at the same rate as the student’s room, meaning the student must pay for the price of two rooms.

If you require a Service Dog, there are some single occupancy studio apartments which students with Service Dogs can book. Students who utilise a Service Dog and who are considering attending University College Dublin must contact UCD Access & Lifelong Learning prior to accepting their offer to discuss their individual needs and to ensure that any necessary supports that they require can be made fully available to them and their Service Dog. For more information on having a service dog on campus please contact disability@ucd.ie. More information can also be found in the Animals on Campus Policy.

Please note that students residing in these rooms are not offered any reduction in fees nor receive any additional supervision or support from UCD Residences.

International Students (From outside the EU) (Updated 13/04/22) 

Room Booking Process

International Students, who are applying directly to UCD, have a different application process compared to the categories above. Students will receive detailed information, via email, on how to apply for UCD on-campus housing, in advance of bookings opening.

As there is a limited supply of rooms available and a large demand for them, we cannot guarantee that all students will be offered a place on campus. It is important that all students apply and complete the online process in a timely fashion once the relevant booking opens, in order to have the best chance of securing on campus accommodation.

Early Application Process for Graduate Students

UCD has introduced an Early Accommodation Payment which allows International Non-Eu Graduate students to secure a room on campus. Graduate students, with an accept/conditional accept who have paid their course deposit, will be able to apply for a place on campus by paying an “early accommodation apply” fee. Please note that there is a limited number of rooms available – places will be offered on a first come first served basis. 

Depending on your specific programme, there are 38 and 50 week housing packages available for Graduate students on both the Belfield and Blackrock campuses.

For more information, see the UCD Global website.
