Ireland is country with a rich artistic legacy, a complex history, and stunning landscapes. Dublin, the capital, is often called the city of writers due to its association with some of the greatest writers in the English language. Jonathan Swift, Oscar Wilde, Oliver Goldsmith, Bernard Shaw and James Joyce were just a few of the writers who once called this exciting city their home.
You will be housed in on-campus accommodations during your time at the UCD Quinn School. On-campus accommodations consist of residences on the Belfield and Blackrock campuses that have two, three, four, and five room self-catered apartments. These apartments are fully equipped and furnished except for kitchen/tableware. You can either bring these items with you or purchase them at the local shops, or purchase a ready-made kit through UCD’s Accommodation Office. On-campus accommodations are limited, however, so UCD Quinn cannot guarantee that all participants will placed in them.
In the rare instance when on-campus accommodations cannot be arranged, off-campus accommodations may be a possibility. You will be assisted by both the UCD Quinn Study Abroad Programme and the UCD Accommodation Office to find suitable housing – usually in an apartment or house. If you prefer to be in a homestay, UCD holds a list of families who offer bed, breakfast and evening meal for either five or seven days per week.
