Dublin City University (DCU)

DCU, 9 Dublin, Ireland
3.87 / 5 based on 282 reviews.
Description:
The University is located on a fifty acre campus in the northern suburbs of Dublin. Most of the University's programmes are provided in new, purpose-built buildings designed specifically for their needs, while the University's engineering programmes are currently housed largely in the older buildings on campus, some of which date back to the establishment of the Albert Agricultural College in the last century. The latter have been extensively refurbished and modernised. The campus with its adjoining parks constitutes a pleasant and productive environment for study and research. Read more

If you need an accomadation apply for Shanowen residences(outside the campus), it's the same price as DCU but you are more independant (no room inspections, can have guests at night...) Read Review

Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I'd rather get a house with other students because their would be more facilities in there (Washing maching....)
Personal comments:
It is very great when you arrive in Dublin and don't know anybody but the rules in those accomadations are very stricts.

The University is OK althoug sometimes it was more like a school. But facilities are very modern and technology is up to date. Bad is that the campus is so far from the city.



FINAL COMMENTS

Get an ISIC card and travel as much as you can by Bur(the dog one). There are several nice Festivals in Ireland. Try to go to the Jazz Festival in Cork and be sure to see Galway and Belfast.
