I will be starting a masters and my sister would be starting first year veterinary medicine. Both are hardworking but very easy going.
Rent should be reasonable and there should be basic facilities. Not paying rent for the summer months would be a plus!
I can appreciate there won't be too many vacancies for student accommodation out there at the minute (can't seem to find much on daft.ie or rent.ie) being in the middle of the term, but if anyone knows of a suitable place that is due to open up and that they would recommend I would love to hear from them.
Any information much appreciated!
I have a suggestion!
I too will be going to ucd in September for 4 years so i am currently looking at accommodation in the area.The campus would be ideal but too costly for me.I am trying to come up with a way to reduce the costs.
For any student living off campus I think it very important to live as close by as possible for obvious reasons.
One student on his/her own looking for private accommodation off campus is difficult and costly,but a group of students looking for accommodation are much more powerful.
There is hundreds of vacant houses in the area with the recent economic downturn and tenants have a bigger say in the renting costs.
What I want to do is start with a group of at least 5 students and start building from there..the more students we can pull together the better deals we can get.
basically I want to eventually set up our own student community so we can make our student life's as fun and as economical as possible..but obviously I need people who are interested in the same thing!!
I don't know where is the best place to share this idea I thought this might be a good place to start!
please let me know what you think!
