All students have a choice of accommodation within the Halls of Residence on campus or in Homestay

A full package of academic and pastoral support is available through a personal tutor system, small class sizes, extra tuition when required, dedicated student support and accommodation officers etc.

Homestay Accommodation

Homestay accommodation is when a student is placed with a family for the first 4 weeks on arrival in Ireland.

This is a good opportunity to improve English speaking skills and get to know Dublin with a bit of help and support.

All of our homestay accommodations are on a good transport route to DIFC.  The host provides breakfast and an evening meal during the week and lunch is included at weekends.

Students have their own bedroom. There will be a desk for study. Some homes have a private bathroom for students and in some the student shares with the family.

After homestay, the other option is private rented accommodation – the Accommodation Officer will help with this. If students are happy to stay in a homestay an agreement can sometimes be made with the host to remain with them for longer.

Rates for homestay accommodation are €750 for the first four weeks including meals and administration fee. The rate for students under 18 years of age is €850.

We can also arrange airport transfer to the homestay accommodation and pickup again the following day from homestay to the campus at a cost of €100
