How do I apply?

All rooms for international undergraduates and postgraduates are allocated by the International Office.

International Undergraduates/Postgraduate students are advised to:

Accept your offer and pay tuition fees within six weeks of the offer being made in order to guarantee accommodation.  Once you cover at least €6500, you will be sent a "private link" to complete the accommodation application. Following this process will place you in the international allocation for rooms, rather than the general lottery system starting on the 15th of July. The online application process for rooms at DCU aims to allocate accommodation as early as possible, and you are advised to apply immediately. 

The private booking system will go live on 1st March at 10:00 hrs.

If you are offered a room on campus a €300 deposit will be required.

Unsuccessful applicants will be held on a waiting list for any cancellations.

For more information on the allocation process, please contact the International Office directly at

Tel. +353 1 700 5344

Please ensure you have your visa in place prior to booking on campus accommodation, as cancelling the room after the arrival date may result in loss of the deposit should the visa application be denied.
