Student Accomodation is a hot topic for many parents and student alike, there is a real perception that student accomodation is unavailable and where suitable accomodation is found it is extremely pricey. We would like assure this is not the case. We had over 300 rooms left available on our website www.ditstudentpad.ie at the end of September 2018, in recent years there has been a surge in building private student accomodation and this means that there are more options available to students who chose to study in Dublin .
What type of accomodation is best suited to your child?
We have completed extensive research in this area and it seems that students who choose to make the transition from Secondary School to College by living in digs (with a family) in the first year transition more smoothly and are happier than students that choose to live alone or with other students in their first year. Moving from a family/secondary school environment where everything is overseen by parents and teachers to moving away for the first time and trying to settle into a completely new way of learning, making new friends and taking care of everything from meals to laundry can be a very big step to take all at once for a young person, therefore based on our findings we recommend that students consider this option for at least the first year. Moving into second year they have settled in to their programme, have their group of friends and are more familiar with the city so this stage they are more prepared to take the next step of living along and taking the responsibility of all that entails.
