In Ireland, on-campus accommodation in the newer universities is a relatively new innovation. Since the mid-1990s, all Irish universities have built up a stock of modern campus accommodation, although on-campus living is still the minority choice for students. Most accommodation is of apartment rather than halls of residence type and is managed by a University company, DCU Campus Residences.

Student residences are situated across three different campuses, providing 1,400 rooms for undergraduates and postgraduates. International undergraduate students are allocated rooms in Hampstead and College Park Apartments on the Glasnevin campus or Purcell House on the All Hallows campus.

The university has built several modern apartment and residences. Larkfield Apartments have 128 units, each with two study bedrooms and a shared living, kitchen and dining area within each unit. The Postgraduate Residences have 37 apartments, each with two, three or four en-suite bedrooms. The Hampstead Apartments consist of 61 units, each with three or five en-suite bedrooms and a shared living, kitchen and dining area. The College Park Apartments consist of 93 units, each with four or five en-suite bedrooms and a shared living, kitchen and dining area

All Hallows is situated in Drumcondra village within easy reach of the Glasnevin and St. Patrick's campuses. There are 63 bedrooms available in Purcell House to students at all levels of study. Accommodation is in single or double bedrooms (single occupancy only) with either ensuite or shared bathroom facilities. Each bedroom has a study area and fixed line internet access (internet cable not provided). There is a large communal kitchen and shared lounge areas


A place in halls is not guaranteed so the majority of students live off campus in privately rented accommodation.

For students who decide to live off-campus, there are a number of rental properties available in the suburbs surrounding the University.

There is also some purpose built off campus student accommodation in the locality. Please note that these are privately managed and not linked to the Dublin City University or Campus Residences Limited.

Please be advised that Campus Residences Limited do not inspect or recommend off campus accommodation and are not responsible for the accuracy of any information on the above listed sites.
