DIT Accommodation


General Information

Welcome to this brief guide on accommodation options available to you if you are considering coming to college with us here at the Dublin Institute of Technology. You are joining DIT at a very exciting time. Over the next few years all the DIT campuses, from all over Dublin city, will be merging onto one location. Grangegorman is situated just on the outskirts of the city centre, and will offer students the unique experience of studying at a newly developed third level institute.

The new campus will  provide student residencies on site. The student residences will offer a range of housing formats from 6 bed and 3 bed apartments to private studio/family units. Ground level spaces for dining, social and study lounges, and related shops serve to activate the Serpentine Walk on the south side, and St. Brendan’s on the north side.

Please note that DIT can only provide advice and information on accommodation. We cannot source accommodation for individual students. All accommodation contracts are between the accommodation provider and the student.

Campus Style Accommodation

For many people, coming to college means living away from home for the first time. We understand that you would like to live in a place that is clean, modern, comfortable, safe, not too expensive, within easy reach of all your activities and preferably with other students who share the same lifestyle as your own. Depending on your circumstances and/or preferences you may chose campus style or private rented accommodation.
