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 Year:
    2nd Year:
    3rd Year:
    4th Year:


  • 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.

  • Started my undergrad as a 30 y/o mature student so want to avoid student accommodation

    1st Year: Phibsboro - Shared house with a couple
    2nd Year: Coolock - Shared house with two lads
    3rd Year: Finglas - Shared house with couple
    4th Year: Whitehall - Apartment, not student a complex

    Was all pretty convenient with a car, cycled occasionally from each place didn't fancy it when it was cold though!

  • 1st: Gateway
    2nd & 3rd: Shanowen
    4th: shared house
