Students have a choice of homestay or a shared apartment in a campus residence.

In the homestays, students have their own rooms, and breakfast and dinner are included. Lunch is the responsibility of the student. Academic year students are responsible for their own accommodation during winter break as staying with the homestay family during that period is not possible. The on-campus student residences house 1,000 undergraduate students. Students have their own room and small bathroom with a shared living, kitchen, and dining area. There are 3 to 6 individual rooms to each shared area. Students in on-campus apartments are responsible for all meals and are not included in the program fee.

Dublin is an ancient city that today is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing European capitals. With a young and vibrant population of over one million, it has enjoyed considerable economic growth in the last decade. While Dublin may be a city on the move, the charm, culture, and heritage of old Dublin is still apparent everywhere. It is perhaps the most literary city in the world with associations that include Joyce, Shaw, Swift, Wilde, and Beckett.
