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 Belgrove/Merville (shared bathroom accommodation) will be cheaper than the monthly installment for Ashfield/Glenomena/Roebuck/Proby (ensuite bathroom accommodation). The monthly installment will also include the monthly cost of utilities and catering (if applicable).

Yes, it has. In line with the new monthly payment structure, the existing security/booking deposit amount (€400) has been amended to an amount equivalent to one month's worth of License Fees / Rent. This will be based on the price of the residence that the resident has a booking for. For example, a resident with a booking in Village Halls will have a deposit cost equivalent to the cost of one month's rent for Village Halls.
