On Campus versus Off Campus Accommodation

Will be starting college in September (hopefully) and am looking at accomodation options, not sure where I'm going yet so just wondering in general if on-campus accomodation works out more expensive or cheaper than off campus accomodation?

Hi Fionn, In general on-campus accomodation is more expensive than off-campus accomodation but this can vary depending on location and type of accomodation. For 2014 some price comparisons are listed below..

NUIG - Corrib village ranges from 72 to 125 euros per week. Off-campus costs around 70 to 100 euros for shared student housing.

UL - Plassey village costs around 92 to 105 euros per week. Off campus accomodation is pretty reasonable in Limerick, costing around 50 to 80 euros per week.

UCC - On campus accomodation ranges from 73 to 150 euros per week. Off campus options range from around 60 to 90 euros per week. (90 euros is max allowed by college accommodation office).

NUIM - On campus options range from 92 to 100 euros per week. Off campus options costs around 70 to 100 euros per week.

CIT - On campus options from 72 to 120 euros per week. Off campus similar to UCC at 60 to 95 euros per week.

WIT - On campus costs around 73 to 87 euros per week. Off campus coming in at around 60 to 80 euros per week for house sharing.

On Campus

DIT - Halls of residence options - see http://www.dit.ie/campuslife/studentsupport/accommodation/

TCD - on campus from 112 to 134 euros per week in Trinity Hall

DCU - On campus apartments around 110 euros per week

UCD - Around 115 euros per week

Digs - Digs will often be the cheapest accommodation option but usually does not include weekend stays. Can be a good option for first year with many students then moving into shared accommodation after this.

Shared accomodation - Shared accomodation in Dublin varies a lot in pricing, depending on the area & standard of housing. There are many poor standard housing options whicah can cost as little as 60 euros per week sharing. For decent standard housing this can rise to 180 euros per week. Competition can be fierce so get in as early as possible as many of the best housing options go fast.

Good luck!!!
