Accommodation


Glasnevin Campus offers two styles of on-campus accommodation for first-year students:

  • Larkfield Apartments contain 126 units, each with two bedrooms and a shared bathroom and kitchenette between two rooms.
  • Hampstead Apartments contain 57 apartments, each with five en-suite bedrooms and shared living/kitchen/dining areas located within the apartment.

St Patrick's Campus accommodation is single room occupancy, with a single bed, study desk, internet access, bookshelves, wardrobe, and wash basin. Students share bathroom facilities with several students on their floor. Each house has a common room with TV & kitchen facilities.

Applications for on campus accommodation for 2021/22 are open at the moment and may be submitted online on www.dcuaccommodation.ie.

As the original application's closure date was in March, both a first and second round bedroom lotteries have been conducted by this time. This means all available bedrooms are currently reserved but as and when cancellations are received, further mini lotteries will be held.

There is the intention to hold at least one more lottery after the CAO offers are made and the Leaving Certificate results published as some students currently holding confirmed offers may wish to cancel their bookings.
