Where did you live during each year in DCU

    I'm curious to know where did you live during each year you were in DCU. No need for specific addresses but if it was a particular student accommodation complex or a private rented house/apartment that is good enough. Thanks.

    1st and 2nd year - shared house in Fairview
    3rd year - was out forrin for Intra and Erasmus
    4th year - shared house near the Phoenix Park.

    There wasn't a hope in hell of getting on-campus accommodation or anywhere that was a +/-15 minute walk from DCU.
    I was doing well to even get that house near Phoenix Park when I came back from Erasmus, as it was in the catchment area for DIT Bolton St, and on the 10 bus route to Trinity & UCD. I really didn't want to share a bedroom or do digs.
