General Information

Welcome

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. 

From September 2020, DIT will provide student residencies on the new Grangegorman campus. 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 will provide dining, social and study lounges and a variety of shops. 

Accommodation options available

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, and 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. 

Please be advised that DIT does not inspect or recommend accommodation and the Institute is not responsible for the accuracy of any information provided by suppliers.

Campus Style Accommodation

This accommodation is purpose built to suit student’s needs. Each complex has their own layout but generally, students have single or twin rooms’ and share a kitchen and living area. The residences are safe and normally provide 24 hour security.  This allows students to live independently in a well-managed and safe environment designed with their needs in mind. 

Block Booked Campus Style Accommodation

Until our new student residences at DIT Grangegorman are complete, DIT have block booked bed spaces with a number of external providers of campus style accommodation. These providers give preferences to DIT students while accommodation is available. Providers try to place students of similar courses and DIT campuses together. DIT has a residential assistant in some of the larger complexes.

Alternative Campus Style Accommodation

There are several other campus style residences suitable for DIT students which have not been block booked by DIT. Further information is available on the link below.

Private Rented Accommodation

If Campus style accommodation does not suit you there are other options.  You can rent a house or flat on your own or with friends, stay with a host family or rent a room in shared accommodation.
