In light of recent amendments to Housing Legislation in Ireland, UCD Residences, as a student accommodation provider, is required to change its existing payment structure to a new schedule. In this new schedule, residents can pay their license fee in monthly installments.

A monthly installment will consist of the one months' License Fee / Rent for the Residence price band for which the resident has a booking. For example, the monthly installment for a resident in the "Apartment - Shared Bathroom" accommodation type will be cheaper than the monthly installment for the "Apartment - Ensuite" accommodation type. The monthly installment will also include the monthly cost of utilities and catering (if applicable).

Yes, it has. The booking and security deposit is no longer equivalent to one month's license fee  For 22/23 the existing security/booking deposit amount has been amended to a standard uniform  amount  of €720 applicable to all residences, regardless of preferred residence price point.

If you notice any issues with your how your residence fees are displaying or the with the total amount owing on your account please refer to the residences monthly fee schedule -  click here  -  for a general clarification. 

For more detailed queries regarding fees please contact residencefinance@ucd.ie 

In line with current RTB Legislation, if you wish to cancel your accommodation on-campus within the License Period, you are required to give a 28-day notice to end your stay in UCD residences  by submitting a cancellation form via email to residences@ucd.ie . You will be liable to pay the License Fee and any and all associated charges up to the end of the 28-day notice period or such longer period of notice provided in the Cancellation Form.
